It turns out ABC News White House Correspondent Jake Tapper is loosely tied to the sex scandal surrounding Gen. David Petraeus. “True story: Jill Kelley’s husband Scott was in my fraternity,” Tapper tweeted this morning with the hashtags #Dartmouth and #AlphaChi.

Apparently, it’s a hit among the troops and their families because Tapper tweeted out the following over the weekend:

Nothing sells books like a military endorsement! Congrats, Jake. He seems to be genuinely humbled, but not too humbled for a book plug! It’s tough to follow because Tapper is moved by people being moved by his moving book. Can I please get off this emotional roller coaster?
