Paula Broadwell has been all over the news today because of her affair with CIA director David Petraeus. So much so that her husband has been pushed somewhat in the spotlight. We’ve learned some things about him, but not much. Here’s everything we know about Paula Broadwell’s husband so far.

3. Scott Broadwell Participated In A Pushup Contest With His Wife And Jon Stewart

4. He Told His Wife To Puff Up Petraeus’ Presidential Dreams
On that very same episode of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Paula let slip during the interview that her husband told her to say that David Petraeus was interested in running for president in order to pump up book sales.
5. He Might Have Written To The New York Times About The Affair
Rumors are flying about a July column of The Ethicist in the New York Times by Chuck Klosterman which appears to answer a question from an anonymous reader asking advice on a situation very similar to the David Petraeus affair. Was this question sent in by Scott Broadwell? No one’s sure, but it’s close enough to cause rampant speculation.
6. The Couple Has A Very Nice House
The family lives in the upscale Dilworth neighborhood in Charlotte. The house is worth $908,000. It is a five-bedroom, four-bathroom two-story brick house.
7. The Couple Met In Germany

8. The Couple Describe Themselves As “Adventure Junkies”
As previously stated the Broadwells trained to be ski patrollers. Paula Ran on the indoor, outdoor and cross-country track teams at West Point. Plus they both are mad good at pushups.

Now, that’s just heart-breaking.
10. Scott Took Care Of The Kids When Paula Went Abroad
As part of her job of covering Petraeus, Paula frequently went overseas. Scott was left to take care of the kids. So far all evidence suggests that the affair had not yet taken place during those times. It wasn’t until after Petraeus came back home and retired from the army.
