The Florida socialite who traded flirtatious emails with the top commander in Afghanistan also sent numerous emails to the mayor of Tampa, including one begging him to shoo away news reporters camped outside her waterfront mansion.

The emails were released Friday by Mayor Bob Buckhorn.

Jill Kelley has been tied to the scandal that prompted the resignation of retired Gen. David Petraeus as CIA director.

The emails portray Kelley — a married mother of three who lives in a waterfront mansion despite being mired in debt — as charming, chatty and polite. She boasted of connections to Petraeus and other high-ranking officials, and she sought Buckhorn's presence at events ranging from hosting a group of VIPs from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nepal to her daughter's birthday party.
