CIA Director David Petraeus submitted letter of resignation yesterday after admitting to an extra-marital affair and many have been wondering who is the other woman?
Well we’ve got the 411!
Her name is Paula Broadwell and she is the author of All In: The Education of General David Petraeus, a biography of the military hero that was released this January.
She’s a West Point graduate and former US Army Major who’s worked with the FBI, CIA and Department of Defense.
Broadwell is 20 years younger than the general at 40 years old and according to her website which has been wiped since Friday night, she is also married, to an interventional radiologist!
Her bio reads:
“They have two very busy young boys, Lucien and Landon,”
According to a report by Buzzfeed, Paula and her husband lived in Charlotte, NC and liked to run, ski and surf together.
The author has even appeared on Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show to promote her book on Petraeus and reveals details of being right by his side. Paula’s husband also makes an appearance around the 9 minute mark.
Paula also discussed the “personal side” of Petraeus with the CBS News:
It’s safe to say these two spent a lot of time together while working on Broadwell’s book, which may have led to the infidelity.
According to NBC, the author is now under investigatiion for hacking into the general’s email account.
Officials say they don’t believe FBI investigation into Broadwell will result in criminal charges.
