Perhaps the most jaw-dropping reaction to news that Jennifer Carroll has resigned as Florida’s Lieutenant Governor is that of Republican strategist Susie Wiles. Quoted by the Associated Press’ Brendan Farrington, Wiles said she couldn’t imagine any work she did for Allied Veterans was anything but above board.
“I don’t think she’s done anything that’s wrong,” Wiles said. “I have every reason to believe that when this is completed she will be exonerated. I base that on a long time of knowing and respecting Jennifer.”
Of course, Wiles also thought Jon Huntsman was going to win Florida’s Republican presidential primary.
