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.”
