Businessman: Kelley Wanted $2 Million to Help with South Korea Deal

Man says she claimed to be a high-level representative for the government


A New York businessman says Tampa, Florida, socialite Jill Kelley asked him for a $2 million commission if she used her influence to win a South Korean business contract.

Kelley, who triggered an FBI investigation that led to the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus, claimed she was a high-level representative of the South Korean government, says the businessman, Adam Victor.

In reality, according to the South Korean Foreign Ministry, Kelley holds a simple honorary title—"special consul"—which boasts no official responsibilities.
