(WASHINGTONPOST) — Paula Broadwell, the newly famous author of a book on former CIA director David Petraeus, might want want to take a cue from Jill Kelly — the alleged recipient of those unpleasant e-mails — when it comes to Damage Control 101.

Kelly, who Broadwell may have been concerned was the general’s other “other woman,” has already lawyered up with renowned defense lawyer Abbe Lowell — former clients include John Edwards, former representative Gary Condit (in the Chandra Levy investigation), Bill Clinton during impeachment days and Loop Favorite/disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

Kelly also hired famous crisis management guru Judy Smith of Monica Lewinsky and BP (the oil spill company) fame to handle any media fallout.
