(Newser) – South Korea has decided to strip one of the women at the center of the Gen. David Petraeus scandal of her honorary consul title, the AP reports. Tampa socialite Jill Kelley—who invoked her consul status in several 911 calls after the scandal surfaced—misused the title by using it in her personal business dealings, a Korean Foreign Ministry official says. A New York businessman says Kelley sought an $80 million fee for using her South Korean connections to broker a deal for a coal project directly with the country's president.

I think McCain and Graham should be after this woman instead of Amb Rice. Who is she blackmailing ? Who is she screwing ? Why does she have these diplomatic rights ? Who gave them to her ? Why ? What access to classified information does she have ? Is it within her security clearance (if any) ? We know very, very little of this Kardashian look alike but she seems to know a helluva lot and have access to a lot more somehow or other.

Hello, Miss Kelley? Please return honorary cardboard badge. No, don't come in, just put in mail slot. Thank you, come again.

Duh! We should strip this whore in other ways too. I'd like to see her videos. You know they exist somewhere.
