    Jennifer Carroll Resigns: Florida Lieutenant Governor Steps Down Amid Probe Into Nonp

    Republican Fla Lt Gov. Jennifer Carroll announced her resignation Wednesday, a day after she was questioned by authorities investigating an Internet cafe company that she once represented. Gov. Scott's chief of staff said she was interviewed by Florida Department of Law Enforcement officers Tuesday regarding her work with Allied Veterans of the World. Carroll had owned a public relations firm that represented Allied Veterans. Allied Veterans operated Internet cafes and purchased software from International Internet Technologies. While serving as a state lawmaker, Carroll's ties to the company were also questioned when she proposed a bill that would benefit Internet cafes.

    The owner of Anadarko, OK-based Internatl' Internet Technologies was arrested Tuesday in Oklahoma on charges of racketeering. He is accused of making $290 million after supplying illegal gambling software in Florida and claiming the games' proceeds would benefit Allied Veterans. OK authorities say the group received only 1 percent of the money. Chase Egan Burns and his wife Kristin face extradition to FLA to face. He and his wife were arrested after an investigation that spanned several years and involved the IRS and various law enforcement agencies in OK and FLA. "What we do is legal," Burns told The Oklahoman on Monday, the night before he turned himself in to local authorities.

    Don't know if Carroll knew it was a scam or not, but this is another fine example that the system works. The perps and their conspirators were caught and exposed. Carroll may not have known, but resigned because of the appearance of impropriety. Either way the right thing happenned.

    Sure, sure, the system works when she was elected Lt. Governor of Florida. How long has she been in office? Just another example of corruption in government. She'll soon be arrested as well.

    As a resident of Florida, it seems to me the Scott administration is as corrupt as they come.

    Carroll was a notorious tea partier. It isn't surprising she is corrupt.

    You love to make incredible unsubstantiated leaps.

    Carroll was not arrested. Her resignation was about appearances due to a lose association with the group from years ago and there is nothing to indicate she had any knowledge of how they were misusing funds. In America people charged with crimes are still presumed innocent until proven guilty. Carroll hasn't even been charged with anything.

    Jennifer Carrol is a living example of the American dream. Placed up for adoption as a little girl. An immigrant to America from a third world country who eventually became an officer in the US military and eventually becoming the first black woman elected Lt. Governor in American history. A devoted wife and mother; two of her sons achieving national notoriety in athletics. One is an NFL star who plays for the Miami Dolphins. The other plays NCAA basketball for Florida Atlantic University.
