First Tampa socialite Jill Kelley lost her ability to access MacDill Air Force Base unescorted due her involvement in the Petraeus scandal, and now the South Korean government has revoked her "honorary consul" title. Korean Deputy Foreign Minister Kim Kyou-hyun explained, “It’s not suitable to the status of honorary consul that (she) sought to be involved in commercial projects and peddle influence. It’s also inappropriate as honorary consul." This shouldn't affect Kelley's ability to claim she deserves special treatment, since the role never gave her diplomatic privileges anyway.
