Jill Kelley Called 911, Requested ‘Diplomatic Protection’

From Fox Tampa Bay:

The South Tampa woman connected to the Gen. David Petraeus scandal has called police to her home several times in the last few days, and at least once tried to invoke “diplomatic protection.”

Media from around the world have convened on the two-story Bayshore Boulevard home of Scott and Jill Kelley.  Jill is the socialite mother of three whose FBI complaint about harassing emails eventually led investigators to uncover the CIA director’s affair with his biographer and is now linked to the name of a second top general. 

The Kelleys have kept a low profile since news of the scandal broke, and had to request police help to chase people from their yard.

Two 911 calls were made from the Kelleys’ home on Sunday.  In the first recording, a man whose name was redacted says there is someone at the door who won’t leave his property.  The second caller, who identifies herself as Jill, says there’s someone lurking in their yard.

 As the call ends, she makes an apparent reference to her role at MacDill Air Force Base, which the Associated Press has described as an “unpaid social liaison.”

“You know, I don’t know if by any chance, because I’m an honorary consul general, so I have inviolability, so they should not be able to cross my property.  I don’t know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved as well,” she told the 911 dispatcher, who agreed to pass the information along to police.

The rest here.
