Now that Jill Kelley has broken her silence, Paula Broadwell is strongly considering doing the same, sources close to David Petraeus' former mistress tell Howard Kurtz at the Daily Beast. Broadwell is eager to resume her media career, and because that career involves being in the public eye, she's realized she can't do that until she offers some accounting of the sex scandal that brought down the CIA director. Kurtz says Broadwell is unlikely to sit down with him the way Kelley did, and points out that, while she has more media experience than Kelley, "she has much more explaining to do."
