With ties to a racketeering case trailing her, Jennifer Carroll has called it quits. Carroll, a Trinidad-born politician who was the first non-European-American to hold statewide public office in Florida since 1868, once consulted for a nonprofit internet cafe company called Allied Veterans of the World, which is now at the center of a racketeering investigation. The owners of the company were recently arrested. ”Effectively immediately, I hereby resign the Office of Lieutenant Governor of the State of Florida. It has been an honor to have served the State of Florida in this capacity,” her statement, in full, said.
