Petraeus mistress won’t face charges

Dec. 18 (Reuters): Federal prosecutors said today they would not file any charges in the cyberstalking investigation of Paula Broadwell, the biographer whose affair with former CIA chief David Petraeus led to his resignation.

Anonymous emails that Broadwell sent to Jill Kelley, a Tampa socialite who knew Petraeus, prompted an FBI investigation that exposed Broadwell’s affair with Petraeus, a retired US army general known for his success in the Iraq war. Petraeus resigned from the CIA last month.

“After applying relevant case law to the particular facts of this case, the United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida has decided not to pursue a federal case regarding the alleged acts of ‘cyberstalking’ involving Paula Broadwell,” the US attorney’s office in Tampa, Florida, said in a statement.

Broadwell was also under investigation for her handling of classified materials and it was unclear today whether that investigation was still continuing.

“Our office cannot comment outside of our statement on the cyberstalking investigation,” a spokeswoman for the Tampa prosecutor said.
