Jill Kelley's grifter sister was married to Bush appointee

Director of Broader Middle East Initiatives and Iraqi Reconstruction and Special Assistant to the Chief Operating Officer at the Export-Import Bank of the United States. He was appointed to the bank by President Bush in June 2002. Between January and August 2004, Grayson served as Manager of the Private Sector Development Office of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Baghdad, Iraq.

and call for a Senate Committee to investigate this matter. It looks like an inside operation of Bush leftovers that were kept in the Obama Administration?

I wonder if it was about her husband and his business interests related to the military.

That deserves investigation.

A spokesman for Whitehouse confirmed that the senator had written that invitation at the request of Harrington.

"Gerry Harrington is a pretty prominent political activist in Rhode Island," said Whitehouse's spokesman "I think Gerry (Harrington) has either been dating or may have been engaged to Natalie . . . Sheldon has met Natalie through Gerry."

Oh goodness these sisters are real operators it seems, wonder when that loan was given, wonder what "dating" means and wonder if Harrington is/was married!

... but still 300000?


Randy Coombes · Top Commenter · South Jordan, Utah
You gotta love this....this Khawan woman hasn't had a job in 16 years and no visible means of earning a living on her own but yet can rub elbows with the likes of John Kerry and Sheldon Whitehouse in Martha's Vineyard and end up with a $300,000 "loan" from a lobbyist? What was she being paid for? Has she paid it back? I think we all know what she was being paid for and it wasn't as part of the dining and bartending crew at the Senator's "clambake" in Martha's Vineyard.

The world's oldest profession is alive and well in this country.
