Broadwell hires Washington PR firm to deal with Petraeus scandal

Nov. 20, 2012 3:55 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 20, 2012 3:55 A.M.)
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Reuters) -- Paula Broadwell, the biographer whose affair with former CIA chief David Petraeus led to his resignation, has hired a high-profile Washington communications firm, Glover Park Group, to represent her, a source familiar with the arrangement said Monday.

Glover Park's consultants include well-known names such as Dee Dee Myers, who served as White House press secretary during President Bill Clinton's first term.

WPP Plc, the world's largest advertising group, bought Glover Park last year.

Broadwell's hiring of Glover Park was reported by AdAge. The firm did not respond to requests for comment.

Anonymous emails that Broadwell sent to Jill Kelley, a Tampa, Florida socialite who knew Petraeus, prompted an FBI investigation that exposed Broadwell's affair with Petraeus, a retired US Army general known for his success in the Iraq war.

Broadwell is under investigation for her handling of classified materials, although both she and Petraeus have separately told investigators they did not share security secrets.

FBI agents found a substantial amount of classified information on Broadwell's personal computer when they searched her home with her consent last week, according to law enforcement and national security officials.
