Former Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll is blasting statements by Integrity Florida's Dan Krassner, which he made during a Monday press conference calling for stricter ethics reform. Carroll says, she should not be held up as a "poster child" for corruption because she has not been charged with any ethics violation or crime.
The following is Carroll's statement in its entirety, which she released through a spokesman on Tuesday:
The Orlando Sentinel reviewed state campaign contribution record and found that Allied Veterans of the World, the group at the center of a multi-state gambling investigation, and its affiliates, made $1.3 million in political contributions to Republicans, Democrats and several lawmakers who deal with state gaming laws.
