Lobbyists representing now-disgraced Internet cafe company linked to Jennifer Carroll resign en masse

in Uncategorized by

Nine lobbyists who had been representing International Internet Technologies, the now-disgraced Internet cafe company linked to Lieutenant Jennifer Carroll’s resignation, have resigned en masse, according to the Florida Commission on Ethics.

Withdrawal paperwork for Sarah Bascom, Douglas Bruce, Carlos Cruz, Scott Dick, Richard Gentry, Ron Greenstein, Jeff Hartley, Eliakim Nortelus, and Greg Turbeville was received this morning, although it is my understanding that the lobby team decided as a group to resign from representing IIT before Carroll’s resignation.  Once the lobby team learned it had been misled by executives at IIT, the decision was made to withdraw.

International Internet Technologies and its owners and affiliates made $340,000 in campaign contributions during the last election cycle.
