If you thought the David Petraeus scandal, in which the Director of the CIA resigned after evidence that he was having an affair with his biographer came to light after said biographer used Petraeus’ own email account to harass another woman he was allegedly sleeping with who had herself received over 20,000 romantic emails from top US General John Allen, didn’t have a weird China angle to it, you’d be wrong.
Want China Times reports that a Taiwanese woman, Liu Shu-jen, is apparently convinced that Petraeus is going to fly to Taiwan and marry her, presumably after he’s divested himself of not only his current wife but also his two (alleged) girlfriends.
After losing US$50,000 in transfers to David’s “offshore bank accounts,” and being arrested after trying to cash 37 fraudulent traveler’s checks she claimed he had sent to her, each worth €500 (US$640), Liu remained determined. She said that her lover, in his military plane, would bust her out of prison and suavely slip the ring on her finger, even if, in the internet “David’s” words, “it would start World War III.”
Liu claims that Petraeus wrote to her before the US Presidential Election, telling her that he would resign once the result was announced. She told China Times that she was unable to show them her correspondence with Petraeus due to “personal factors”.
Petraeus apparently isn’t the only top US official Liu is close to, she revealed on her Facebook account that President Obama’s response to a question on immigration in the October 18th Presidential Debate was directed at her. “Obama’s reply mentioned me and my situation without mentioning my name,” she claimed.
