NEW: RI Lobbyist Gave $300,000 Loan to Sister of Jill Kelley

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

 

A prominent Rhode Island lobbyist and Democratic fundraiser gave a $300,000 personal loan to the twin sister of Jill Kelley, the woman tied to the love affair that ended CIA Director David Petraeus’ career, court documents show.

Bankruptcy records filed by Natalie Khawam last April list Gerald Harrington, the founder of the Capitol City Group, as an unsecured creditor on the loan. Khawam owes nearly $4 million in total.

The loan was first reported by the New York Post.

A message left at Harrington’s Providence law firm was not immediately returned.

The Post is reporting that both Patraeus and General John Allen “intervened” in a child custody battle that involved Khawam. The Post also claims Khawam namedropped Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse and Massachusetts Senator John Kerry in court documents. Harrington has contributed to both Whitehouse and Kerry.
