On Tuesday, Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll submitted her resignation amidst a multi-agency probe into illegal activities of Allied Veterans of the World, a Florida-based nonprofit, whom Carroll represented at one time with her public relations firm.
Reacting to Carroll’s resignation, Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Allison Tant issued the following statement:
“Floridians expected an administration focused on solving the problems facing Florida’s families, but instead got a scandal plagued Governor and a revolving staff door. Rick Scott and his administration have made a mockery of the Governor’s office — embarrassing Floridians while failing to accomplish his legislative priorities. Scott campaigned on changing Tallahassee but his first three years have been more of the same corruption and waste that taxpayers have come to expect from Florida Republicans.”
