WASHINGTON - The woman who sparked an FBI investigation that eventually led to the downfall of CIA chief David Petraeus sent a pleading email to her town’s mayor claiming she’s recently been the target of “threats,” according to ABC News.

In the email, sent a Wednesday morning and posted online by the mayor’s office Friday, Florida socialite Jill Kelley says that she has been “receiving threats all night, by people that now have my cell phone number,” and complains that the Tampa police department released a 911 call she made over the weekend about trespassers.

“I’m scared and I cannot believe what my city - in which I have contributed so much of my love, time, money and leadership, has now done to me and my innocent family,” she wrote. The email was one of dozens released by the mayor’s office. Many of the others, mostly from this year, deal with invitations to events hosted by Kelley and reference top military officials, including Petraeus.

The emails show Kelley making good use of ceremonial titles given to her by the military and government officials, including the title of honorary ambassador to the Coalition Forces in Afghanistan and honourary consul to South Korea.
