A White House official has confirmed to The Washington Post's Amy Gardner that Jill Kelley, the Tampa socialite embroiled in the scandal surrounding former CIA director and retired general David H.

Records of the visits are not yet available through the White House visitor logs, which can take months to be published.

In addition, WTSP 10 News in Tampa is reporting that Kelley accompanied Gen. John R. Allen on a military flight from MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa to Washington, D.C. on at least one occasion, and two years ago, as a guest of U.S. Special Operations Command, Kelley went skydiving with the Para-Commandos parachute demonstration team, which operates out of MacDill.

10 News also reports that no rules violations occurred from either of these instances.
