    Another sex scandal, this one involving Gen. John Allen, commander of US & NATO troops in Afghanistan, and Jill Kelley, the other other woman at the heart of the Petraeus scandal.

    From the Washington Post:

    According to a senior U.S. defense official, the FBI has uncovered between 20,000 and 30,000 pages of "potentially inappropriate" emails between Allen and Jill Kelley, a 37-year-old Tampa woman whose close friendship with Petraeus ultimately led to his downfall. Allen, a Marine, succeeded Petraeus as the top allied commander in Afghanistan in July 2011.
