An attorney for Tampa socialite Jill Kelley has threatened to sue federal officials over leaks in the David Petraeus sex-scandal investigation. Shortly after Petraeus resigned as CIA director, Kelley was identified as the woman who told the FBI about threatening emails she had received, triggering the investigation that uncovered Petraeus' extramarital affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell. D.C. power attorney Abbe Lowell, who represents Kelley, said the leaks were an invasion of her privacy, and "most certainly had to come, at least in part, from government sources."
