Despite a tumultuous week, Jennifer Carroll said in a 25-minute interview with the New York Times that she was ready to move on and that she viewed her resignation as a setback rather than a catastrophe. She said she was already fielding offers and was weighing a jump into corporate life, community service and, perhaps later, a return to politics.
“People are calling me asking me to run for this, that and the other thing,” said Carroll, 53, who is married with three grown children. “I say, you know what? First of all, I am going to spend time with my family, because for the last two years it’s been very difficult.”
Asked later about the appropriateness of the skit, Ms. Carroll, whose earthiness helped charm Floridians and lawmakers, quipped, “I’m glad she had the stilettos and was looking good.”
