South Tampa socialite Jill Kelley has lost one more status symbol.
The state Department of Motor Vehicles has been informed by the U.S. Department of State that she no longer qualifies for an honorary consul license plate, according to a spokesman.
"We received word from the U.S. Department of State that her status" as an honorary consul for South Korea "has been terminated," said DMV spokeswoman Courtney Heidelberg.
"We will be recalling her honorary license plate. We will probably send a letter to her in the next couple of days."
In the wake of a scandal that ended the career of CIA Director David Petraeus, Kelley's status as a member of the "Friends of MacDill," which gave her unescorted daylight access to the base, was temporarily put on hold.
Kelley told the FBI about emails from Paula Broadwell, who was writing a biography of Petraeus, and that kicked off an investigation that led to Petraeus' resignation as CIA director. Petraeus was hugely popular in Tampa when he was commander of U.S. Central Command at MacDill.
