Broadwell hires Washington PR firm to deal with Petraeus scandal
Broadwell returned to her home in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Sunday for the first time since the scandal erupted on Nov. 9 with Petraeus's sudden resignation. Along with her husband and two children, she was greeted by close friends and neighbors.
It's tough, said neighbor Sarah Curme. Her primary focus is her husband and her kids. I think that's where they are now.
Glover Park is the latest high-profile adviser hired by a figure in the scandal.
Kelley is being represented by one of Washington's most prominent trial lawyers, Abbe Lowell, a family friend who has represented former U.S. Senator John Edwards and disgraced Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
Kelley also has enlisted Judy Smith, a well-known crisis PR manager who is the model for the ultra-effective fixer and spin doctor Olivia Pope in the ABC TV drama Scandal.
Kelley's twin sister, Natalie Khawam, has retained celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred and the pair plan to hold a news conference in Washington on Tuesday to explain Natalie's relationship with General Petraeus and his wife Holly.
Petraeus has hired Washington lawyer, Robert Barnett of Williams & Connolly LLP, to help him navigate the fallout from his career-ending affair with Broadwell.
