Shit FINALLY gets interesting
It’s like OJ. If he’d been a real movie star, then fine. But he was just a football player and beside, WTF is a “low speed chase”? I still don’t get that one.
Bubba the Love Sponge (…) — The Tampa based radio host and long time Howard Stern Show bro — was named in a newly released series of emails between General David Petraeus’ scandal figure Jill Kelley and Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn. Kelley and Buckhorn exchanged emails about Bubba the Love Sponge in March 2012 after BTLS threatened to deep fat fry a Koran on air.
According to the emails, both Petraeus and General John Allen contacted Mayor Buckhorn directly asking him to intervene and stop the stunt for fear that U.S. troops could be endangered.
Buckhorn turned to Kelley, a “Tampa socialite” who has experience smoothing over sticky situations, for help.
Examiner.com really needs to give Liz Brown a bonus for that last sentence. If I didn’t know better, I’d have guessed she was actually a 60 something British male Fleet Street reporter, writing something like that. In fact, I wonder if even SHE knows what she did there.
