Unfortunately for Ms. Kelley, allegedly banging a general isn’t within the boundaries of what can be considered appropriate Gangnam style. She will have to take her vaguely sexual horse-riding dance somewhere else.
The “honorary consul” post that socialite Jill Kelley tried to parlay into South Korea business to her benefit will be yanked, that country’s national news agency reported Monday.
Kelley, who threw parties at her Bayshore Boulevard mansion for U.S. and coalition military brass stationed at MacDill Air Force Base, was awarded the title by South Korea in August.
South Korean Deputy Foreign Minister Kim Kyou-hyun, in Washington, D.C., for regular consultations with U.S. officials, cited Kelley’s efforts to use her title for personal gain.
“It’s not suitable to the status of honorary consul that (she) sought to be involved in commercial projects and peddle influence,” Kim said Monday, according to the Yonhap News Agency.
No word as to how you get an honorary consul post, except that you probably buy it, because pretty much everything can be bought in Washington. What I’m constantly shocked at, though, is the insistence that Jill Kelley was some kind of high-influence power broker, when all she really did was hang around the outskirts of really important people. Its like if people thought that ugly girl with the pigtails and the endless wardrobe of PINK sweats who hung around the popular kids in high school but never actually got invited to their parties somehow ended up being elected Homecoming Queen.
