Skip to comments.'The truth will come out': Father claims her affair is part of bigger scandal [Petraeus]

The father of David Petraeus' mistress Paula Broadwell has defended his daughter today as an 'exceptional person', saying he supports her 100 per cent after details of her sordid affair with the decorated general were made public.
General Petraeus's relationship with Broadwell, his biographer, was revealed on Friday after an FBI investigation which suspected corruption between the pair.
Broadwell's father Paul Kranz, a retired high school basketball coach, suggested that the explosive revelations that led to Petraeus resigning as CIA director, have been used to cover up a bigger scandal.
Grandma Broadwell took her Facebook page down. I feel bad for that family. Grandma’s page could have been mine although I quit doing the stupid games. I wish them well.
If this is part of a bigger scandal, then hiring all these lawyers makes sense.
a bit more........trickle......
What daddy’s heart would not swell with pride - she bedded a four star.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
I really don’t get it. She had a beautiful family. Was it worth the risk? And Petraeus - thought he was so smart. Wouldn’t surprise me if there was no affair. Not sure what to make of all of this, but it isn’t just about sex.
Mesta, would you mind adding me to your ping list? Thanks.
I have no doubts that there is more behind this than anybody is telling us.
What I do doubt is that our stupid Congress will ever have the balls - or integrity - to get to the bottom of this story.
This is why I love the UK papers. They give us so much more to work with. :)
Does anyone know - was Broadwell being paid to write the Patreus book? If so, who was paying her & what are her qualifications?
Let’s play a game. What if she really didn’t ‘bed him’? What if he only SAID she did to get himself out of a jam? What if his two ‘lady’ friends down there in Florida set HER up? And it’s all backfiring?
It's happened before.
Reminds me of Monica’s father blaming Ken Starr for her troubles.
It has everything that appeals to the media about a scandal (sex, men in power, resignation, CIA, etc) except for one very vital thing: A Republican President.
You can hear the laments of the columnists from here. Meanwhile, the subscribers and viewers dwindle down even more as do the profits.
If there is a deeper scandal, someone told him!
You would think that the woman Kelley from Florida after getting threatning emails from Broadwell, would have told Petraeus about them before going to the FBI. I mean Kelley and her doctor Husband were suppose to be such close friends of Petraeus and his wife. Very strange. Does not make since.
I wouldn’t be surprised one bit if this is an equal-opportunity scandal and both sides of the aisle want to sweep it away.
