I really don’t want to be a conspiracy monger. I really don’t. I still believe that you should never attribute to malice what can be adequately explained by stupidity. Still, I have to tell you, stuff like this is for fertile ground for little conspiracy seedlings.
An Obama administration official says a Tampa Bay socialite whose emails triggered the eventual downfall of CIA director David Petraeus visited the White House three times this year with her sister, twice eating in the Executive Mansion mess.
The official says that Jill Kelley, who initiated an investigation that ultimately unveiled Petraeus’ extramarital affair, and her sister had two “courtesy” meals at the White House mess as guests of a mid-level White House aide. Kelley and her family also received a White House tour. The visits occurred during the past three months.
