Excerpted from The New York Post: Allen, the four-star general top commander in Afghanistan, was revealed last night to have exchanged thousands of pages of of emails with Kelley, who went to the feds after receiving threatening e-mails from Paula Broadwell, the married mistress of Petraeus.
And in court documents filed by Kelley’s sister Natalie Khawam, she name-drops both Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island — who both have ties to a Providence, RI, lawyer/Democratic fundraiser who loaned a whopping $300,000 to Khawam.
A spokesman for Whitehouse today that lawyer, Gerald Harrington, has dated and “may have been engaged to Khawam.” Harrington has not returned a call seeking comment.
Khawam claimed in a July 12 letter to her estranged husband that she took their now 4-year-old son “on vacation last year to Martha Vineyard,” where their son and “I had a great time at the DSCC [Democratic Senate Campaign Committee] event.”
“Sen. John Kerry asked if [her son] would be coming again this year,” Khawam wrote. “[Their son] was a superstar at the DSCC last year.”
A spokeswoman for Kerry – who the Washington Post reports is being considered as President Obama’s next secretary of defense — in an email comment wrote, “Senator Kerry’s friend Jerry Harrington introduced him to his girlfriend (Natalie) at a DSCC event.”
Also filed in that court case by Khawam is a letter from Whitehouse, who like Kerry is a Democrat.
That letter was written to Harrington, who has been a fundraiser for Kerry and other Democrats out of Rhode Island. Harrington, according to Khawam’s federal bankruptcy filing earlier this year in Florida, gave her a personal loan of $300,000.
“Derry Gerry,” Whitehouse wrote. “I am excited to hear that you and [Khawam's son] may be coming to the Family Clambake. That would be terrific! All the best wishes, Sheldon.”
