Bismarck's Connection to David Patraeus Resignation

Posted:

The resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus has connections to Bismarck.

Petraeus stepped down after announcing he had been having an affair with his biographer.

Paula Broadwell, wrote"All In."

She's also a Bismarck native.

KX News made attempts to contact Broadwell's father who lives in Bismarck.

We called Paul Kranz and also went to his home.

Kranz defended his daughter to the "Daily Mail".

According to the "Daily Mail" Kranz suggested that the affair may have been used to cover up a bigger scandal.

Broadwell was embedded with the general and had extensive access to Petraeus in Afghanistan.

"All In" was released in January and has been a popular book in the Bismarck area because of the native writer.

The book has not stayed on library shelves long at all and is still featured as a new release.

All the copies are sold out at Barnes and Noble and the book is now on back order.

A paperback version is expected to be released in December.

According to a story on "Politico," Paula Broadwell was the top search on Google from Friday until Saturday afternoon. The report says there were over a million searches on her name during that time frame.
