“Black women who look like me don’t engage in relationships like that” – Former Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll Discusses Her Fall from Grace

Jennifer Carroll was once flying high in the world of right wing politics.  She’d earned the respect of those who don’t get much black support, and was clearly aiming her political sights for the top of the food chain.  But it all came to an end after an investigation related to a veterans charity accused of running illegal slot machines.

Carroll says that she was in her office taking photos when agents came in, asking to speak with her.   Shortly afterward, she was asked to resign by Florida Governor Rick Scott.   She resigned immediately after that.

“In my military time, when the commander in chief makes a demand or a request, you say ‘Aye, aye sir,’ and you march on. And that’s what I did,” she said, referencing her experience in the Navy. “I thought it would be better to remove myself from being a distraction.”

Carroll herself wasn’t under investigation, but the incident involved a group called the Allied Veterans, who were being accused of unseemly activity.  Carroll says she was paid $6,000 per month to do PR work for the company and knew nothing about illegal activities.  The leaders of the company, 60 in total, have been charged with running a massive illegal gambling ring.   Carroll says the governor knew about her work with the company when he considered her as his running mate.

“This was part of my vetting,” she said. “Everything was on the table. My association with clients, my degrees, my time in the service, my time in the Legislature, all my bills, all my media press clips. All of that was discussed. So this wasn’t anything that was new to anybody.”

Carroll hasn’t spoken to the governor since she resigned on March 12.   She was the first female to ever hold her post.  Things got interesting a few months ago, when a black staffer filed a lawsuit against Carroll, claiming that she was engaged in a lesbian act with another woman in her office.  That’s when Carroll made the comment: “Black women who look like me don’t engage in relationships like that.”

Carroll’s remarks offended gay and lesbian rights activists around the country.  To date, Carroll continues to deny the allegations, but her tenure has been a volatile one, to say the least.

    Here is another example of the lack of respect for people of color when they are asked to remove themselves
    While others (white males) would go the distance with an unknown settlement and new career.

    Lets’s look at what She Said and not at what happened to her. What is so special or different about “her looks” that is different than those of a great many lesbian, black women. That is her problem, she thought that the way she looked to herself would take her where she wanted to go, but she didn’t look that good or that different to the folks with the real power, like the “Gov”.

    Lie. She resigned for other reasons. I heard Rick Scott was involved with the casinos too. She took the bullet for him–great house ni&&a move. Scott’s career, in terms of getting votes, should be done.

    According to what I have observed, “black women who look like” former Lt. Gov. Carroll do get into such situations. If any of the allegations are true, so what? What Harold says is plausible. Many subordinates “take a bullet” for a higher-up. The Lt. Gov., with her military background, would be quicker to take the bullet.
