The heat is on President Obama as angry congressional leaders demand to know why the Obama administration withheld information about a sex scandal involving the head of the CIA until after the elections.
And now Obama's choice to lead the NATO team in Afghanistan is himself embroiled in a sex scandal involving one of former CIA director David Patraeus's alleged mistresses.
From The NY Daily News:
The President, his Election Day momentum stalled by a mountain of salacious headlines, is trying to replace key members of his cabinet and national security team as angry congressional leaders demand answers about the Petraeus affair and why they were given zero advance notice of the spymaster’s lively love life.
Now, the collateral damage from Petraeus’ two-timing has hit Gen. John Allen, whose appointment to head NATO forces in Europe has been put on hold after it turns out he and Kelley exchanged a blizzard of sometimes “flirtatious” emails.
Obama — who is facing tough questions about why he wasn’t informed of the months-long investigation until after Election Day — has expressed “faith” in Allen.
In a now-familiar refrain, Allen claims he was just friends with Kelley, a married mom of three who worked as an unpaid social liaison at the Tampa base housing U.S. Central Command, the Washington Post reported.
He wrote her several hundred emails over a couple of years, a senior U.S. official told the paper — disputing another Pentagon estimate that the two exchanged up to 30,000 documents and emails.
But one source told Fox News that the emails were indeed raunchy, describing them as the “equivalent of phone sex over email.”
