South Korea will cancel an honorary title given to the socialite linked to a scandal involving former CIA director David Petraeus, officials in Seoul said today.

A Foreign Ministry official said Jill Kelley abused her title as honorary consul by raising it in personal business transactions.

Kelley was introduced to a New York businessman at the GOP Convention in Tampa in August as someone whose closeness with Petraeus would help make easy a no-bid deal with South Korea on a coal-gasification project. But she exacted a 2 percent commission, said Adam Victor, president executive officer of TransGas Development Systems.

Kelley had alleged that Petraeus’ mistress, Paula Broadwell, had sent her threatening emails, telling her to stay away from the former general.
