13 Torrid Sex Scandals Involving Spies

James Bond movies have shown us that sex and spies go hand in hand. And although 007 is fictional, the soap opera-ready people involved in the Petraeus scandal are all too real. But are they outliers or are spies simply more likely to lose control? As this list demonstrates, David Petraeus is far from the only spy to let his libido take control. He's not even the first CIA director to do so. Read on to learn about Petraeus and twelve other spies who have had some of the most torrid sex scandals in history.

    The Torrid Details
    You've probably heard the details before, but here's a quick summary: Head of the CIA and respected retired general, David Petraeus, had an affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell. Broadwell, having heard the advice that "If he cheats on his wife, he'll cheat on you," grew jealous of Petraeus's relationship with Tampa socialite Jill Kelley, and sent Kelley emails warning her to back off. Kelley asked her friend, FBI Agent Fred Humphries, to investigate the emails. His interest in the investigation was so intense that his supervisors pulled him off the case. During the FBI's investigation, flirtatious emails between Kelley and General John Allen were also uncovered. 

    The Aftermath
    Frustrated with his supervisors' handling of the e-mail investigation, Humphries went to a Republican Congressman about the case, which led to all of the above information becoming public and embarrassment for pretty much everyone involved. Petraeus has resigned from the CIA. Broadwell has had her security clearance revoked and computers that had classified documents on them have been removed from her home. Allen has had his promotion put on hold. Kelley has called 911 and requested diplomatic protection (she was appointed an honorary consul by South Korea, which is now reviewing that appointment). And Agent Humphries, the man who made sure this would all be public knowledge, will forever be known as Shirtless FBI Agent
