  •  And Broadwell raised $$ for GOP candidates (8+ / 0-)

    In October:

    Paula Broadwell, the woman whose affair with Gen. David Petraeus appears to have forced his sudden resignation last week as CIA director, also helped Republican state lawmakers raise thousands of dollars by appearing at an event last month.

    Broadwell, 40, who is the author of a recent biography of Petraeus, appeared at an Oct. 9 fundraiser, “Celebrating Colorado’s Women Leaders” that was hosted by outgoing House Majority Leader Amy Stephens and GOP Caucus Chair Carole Murray.

    So, yeah, let's be clear this is a largely Republican scandal. Obama has been quite bipartisan but it's not Democrats this time that are embarrassing.
