TAMPA, Fla. - The twin sisters involved in the David Petraeus scandal crashed one of Sen. Marco Rubio's campaign fundraisers in 2010, the host of the fundraiser said.

The twins, Jill Kelley and Natalie Khawam, came to the party uninvited, took their photo with Rubio and quickly left without donating money to his Senate campaign, said Angelette Aviles, of Tampa.

"I thought it was disrespectful," said Aviles, who posted a photo of the twins with Rubio on Twitter.

A Rubio spokesman said the senator doesn't recall meeting the twins and added that senator from Florida has posed for countless photos with supporters over the years. Rubio's spokesman noted Kelley has invited Rubio to several parties since he was elected to the Senate, but Rubio has never attended.

An attorney for Kelley did not return a phone call.

The FBI said Kelly, of Tampa, received threatening emails from Petreaus' mistress, who apparently saw her as a romantic rival.
