Socialite Jill Kelley Sues FBI for Breach of Privacy During Petraeus Investigation

Jill Kelley, whose complaints about threatening e-mails led to the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus, has sued the FBI, saying the agency violated her privacy by divulging her name to the media, the Huffington Post reports.

At the time, federal agents were investigating Petraeus’ extramarital relationship with Paula Broadwell, the author of Petraeus’ biography.

Broadwell told authorities she believed Kelley was competing with her for Petraeus’ affections.

“There was no legally acceptable reason for the government to disclose confidential information about the Kelleys and thereby make them part of the public scandal,” the lawsuit reads.
