Is Jennifer Carroll done as Lieutenant Governor?

The answer to this question is a definite maybe.  

There are rumblings out of Jacksonville that the arrest of FOP President Nelson Cuba and the group’s vice president Robbie Freitas, stemming from a national investigation of St. Augustine-based Allied Veterans of America (read: Internet cafes), may be blowing back on Carroll. 

Do yourself a favor and keep an eye on Florida Times Union reporter Matt Dixon’s column and Tweets (@MDixon55).  

And for background, you can read former Times Union reporter Abel Harding’s story from 2010 about how controversial legislation benefiting the Internet cafe industry proposed by then-Representative Jennifer Carroll was dropped after flags were raised over her proximity to Allied Veterans. 

Or it could all be nothing…
