Florida Lt. Gov. Carroll resigns

Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll resigned Tuesday as questions arose over a company for which she previously consulted.

In a two-sentence resignation letter delivered to Gov. Rick Scott, Carroll said it was an "honor to have served."

The resignation came a day after some people were arrested "for racketeering and money laundering charges in connection with Allied Veterans of the World's illegal gambling companies," Scott's chief of staff Adam Hollingsworth said. Carroll consulted for Allied Veterans while serving in the state House of Representatives in 2009 and 2010.

    It was the widespread use of racial profiling in which many BLACK AMERICANS were arrested as well as the rise of the hip hop nation is what has contribute to the black holocaust in which black human population were exterminated during the years between 1968-1993-2013.Mean while a new demonic black AMERICA has arisen from the blaclk antebellum and hip hop nation and are based on stereotypical images of low class ,poverty stricken and criminally prone blacks and has replace the black human population.

      Citations, please, otherwise it's all conjecture, Andre.
      Are you asserting that Jennifer Carroll had something to do with your 'black holocaust?'

      I didn't know what antibellum meant, so I looked it up. Did they have hip-hop in the mid 1800s?

      I was guessing it meant sheep placenta. I was way off.

      The above comment was crass and offensive. I apologize to anyone I may have offended with that. That was totally out of character for me.

      Here's the difference...with a Republican, if they've done something that's unethical they step down. With the Democrats they keep beating the drum and noone calls them out on it. I guess because the Democrats have NO integrity they are exempt from wrong doing.

    It's amazing Rick Scott was ever elected after his giant fraud case he paid off, why would anyone expect his appointees would be any more clean? Florida voters are the least educated in the nation.
