Lt Govenor Carroll Resigns
"On Monday, leaders of the company and the head of Jacksonville's police union were arrested on charges of racketeering and money laundering.
"Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll consulted for Allied Veterans while serving as a member of the Florida House of Representatives in 2009 and 2010. She was interviewed by Florida Department of Law Enforcement officers Monday regarding her work with the company," Gov. Rick Scott's chief of staff, Adam Hollingsworth, said in a statement. "Lt. Gov. Carroll resigned in an effort to keep her former affiliations with the company from distraction from the administration's important work on behalf of Florida families. She made the right decision for the state and her family."
The Internal Revenue Service, Secret Service, FDLE and sheriff's offices in Jacksonville and elsewhere are all part of the criminal investigation. Investigators said that Allied Veterans tried to scheme and defraud the public and governmental agencies by misrepresenting how much of its proceeds were donated to charities affiliated with Veterans Administration.
Carroll's public relations firm, 3 N. and J.C. Corporation, is currently inactive, according to the Florida Division of Corporations. Scott's office said in 2011 that Carroll had ended her affiliation with Allied Veterans.
In 2010, Carroll was criticized for introducing legislation to legalize sweepstakes games such as those in cafes operated by Allied Veterans. Then, as in now, Allied Veterans and other internet cafe operators took advantage of a loophole in state law that some say should be closed while other say internet cafes should be legal but regulated.
Carroll later withdrew the proposed law, saying it was filed erroneously and that she wasn't interested in legalizing internet cafes, the Florida Times-Union reported."
