Former spokesman says Petraeus is 'devastated'November 12, 2012 @ 5:07 am (Updated: 12:26 pm - 11/12/12 )
WASHINGTON (AP) - A former spokesman for David Petraeus says the retired general's affair with a female biographer started after Petraeus left the Army.
Retired Army Col. Steve Boylan tells ABC's "Good Morning America" that Petrauus' wife of 38 years, Holly, is "furious" over the matter. Boylan also in says in an interview that Petraeus' affair with Paula Broadwell ended four months ago. Petraeus, who has resigned as CIA director, acknowledged the affair in a letter to agency employees.
Boylan, appearing Monday on ABC, said Petraeus' wife "is not exactly pleased right now. Furious would be an understatement."
Boylan, who says he spoke with Petraeus over the weekend, tells NBC's "Today" show that Petraeus is "devastated." Boylan says "it's going to take a long time" for him to set things straight at home.
