HuffPo has the story:
Kelley's identical twin sister, Natalie Khawam, profited from her own lobbying connection. Bankruptcy records show that Gerald "Jerry" Harrington, a Rhode Island lobbyist and Democratic fundraiser, loaned Khawam $300,000 that she was unable to pay back.
Khawam dated Harrington while she lived with her sister in Tampa, Fla., attending the many parties Kelley hosted for military officers stationed at nearby MacDill Air Force Base. At the time Harrington, too, had plenty of connections with the military. But not the social kind.
Since 2010, Harrington's lobbying firm, Capitol City Group, has made $1.14 million from clients with lobbying interests in military spending and defense bills, according to disclosure reports.
The largest of them is Picerne Military Housing, which constructs, sells, and manages housing on U.S. military bases. Since 2010, Harrington and his business partner have received $300,000 from Picerne, and an additional $40,000 from Picerne's subsidiary, Picerne Capital. In exchange, they actively lobbied Congress on 42 bills, ranging from military base construction to World War II memorials.
Lobbying records also show that Harrington made $40,000 in the past two years lobbying the Department of Veterans Affairs and Congress on behalf of Radiation Therapy Services...
Harrington helped introduce Khawam to Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.). A Kerry spokesperson told the Boston Herald that Kerry met Khawam "a couple of times" at an annual Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee event on Martha’s Vineyard.
