WASHINGTON (AP) — Two Republican congressmen, Spencer Bachus and Walter Jones, say the Justice Department inspector general's office is declining to look into a complaint by a businesswoman whose identity was leaked to the news media after she reported to the FBI that she was the victim of a cyberstalker.
Jill Kelley is suing the FBI and the departments of Defense and State in an effort to learn who in the U.S. government leaked her name and some of her emails amid the uproar over Gen. David Petraeus' affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell. The FBI determined that Broadwell was the cyberstalker who sent harassing emails to Kelley.
The Justice Department says it is reviewing the information from Bachus and Jones. A spokesman for the IG's office, Robert Storch, declined to comment.
