E-mails reveal Petraeus asked for Florida socialite's help to 'stop RJ from burning Koran'
Jill Kelly, the Tampa socialite whose complaint kicked started an FBI probe into General David Petraeus' sex scandal, wrote an email to the city's mayor saying that the former CIA director and the top commander in Afghanistan General John Allen had asked her to stop a radio talk show host from burning the Koran.
In March 2012, a Tampa shock jock named Bubba the Love Sponge announced he was going to 'deep fat fry' a Koran as a stunt.
Kelley wrote Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn saying that then CIA Director David Petraeus and Allen, had asked her about "getting this dealt with."
According to the New York Daily News, Buckhorn responded that the city was 'working on it', according to email correspondence released by his office this week.
Buckhorn also wrote that 'This Bubba the Love Sponge is a complete moron'.
"OK keep me in the loop," Kelley wrote, adding; "Gen Allen will be calling me from Afghanistan at 1 p.m on this - and our next step".
Bubba the Love Sponge never followed through on the inflammatory move, but he was reportedly part of a crowd outside Kelley's Tampa mansion on Friday, the report added.
Displeased over being called a "moron," the DJ drove his truck in front of the Kelley house for a half-hour, pumping a parody to the tune of Falco's "Rock Me Amadeus" with the lyrics changed to "Petraeus," the report added.
