Kelley loses special consul license plates

Published By United Press International
TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 30 (UPI) -- The Tampa, Fla., woman at the center of the sex scandal that led David Petraeus to resign as CIA director lost her special license plate, state officials said.

Florida's Department of Motor Vehicles said Jill Kelley, 37, no longer qualifies for the special-issue honorary consul plates after South Korea stripped Kelley of her honorary title for misusing it in some business dealings, the New York Post reported Friday.

She had the honorific title because she helped arrange meetings between Tampa businessmen and South Korea's ambassador to the United States, the Post said.

As of Thursday, her three vehicles had regular Florida plates.

Kelley's complaint about allegedly threatening emails led to the probe that exposed Petraeus' affair with biographer Paula Broadwell.
