Florida’s Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll has made national headlines twice in the past week. She was one the estimated[ 200 Mitt Romney supporters who were bussed in to the NAACP meeting]( to see the presumptive GOP candidate speak. Now she’s in the news again because a former aide claims she witnessed Carroll and a top aide in a ["compromising position" ]( the Lt. Governor’s office. Carroll, who is the first female elected as Lieutenant Governor in Florida and the first black Lt. Gov., says the accusations are lies. But perhaps she should come up with a better defense. When asked about the accusations by a [Tampa TV station,]( Carroll poked fun at the accuser’s relationship status, and claimed "black women that look like me don’t engage in relationships like that." Apparently she has never seen a black women who wears lipstick and sometimes makes out with other women.
