Paula Broadwell-Petraeus Affair Was Briefly on Wikipedia in January

As bizarre new details emerge in the scandal that brought down CIA director David Petraeus, an anonymous Wikipedia edit back in January is raising eyebrows.

Blogger Milo Wendt noted that Paula Broadwell, the biographer who allegedly had an affair with Petraeus, earned a Wikipedia entry after she appeared on The Daily Show to promote her book on the former general. An hour later, an anonymous editor logged on to note that “Petraeus is reportedly one of her many conquests.”

The edit was quickly flagged as libel and deleted, but a search of the IP address where it originated didn’t turn up the author.
