Twins in Petraeus scandal took photo with Rubio

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The host of a fundraiser for Sen. Marco Rubio says the twin sisters involved in the David Petraeus scandal crashed one of Rubio’s campaign fundraisers.

Angelette Aviles hosted the fundraiser in 2010. She said Thursday that the twins, Jill Kelley and Natalie Khawam, came to the party uninvited, took their photo with Rubio and quickly left without donating money to his Senate campaign. Aviles posted a photo of the twins with Rubio on Twitter.

A Rubio spokesman says the senator doesn’t recall meeting the twins and added that Kelley has invited him to parties but he never attended. An attorney for Kelley did not return a phone call.

The FBI says Kelly received threatening emails from Petreaus’ mistress, who apparently saw her as a romantic rival.
