USA Today:

A former aide of Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll said she was fired last year after she caught her then boss and another female staffer in ‘a compromising position’ in Carroll’s office, Reuters reports. … ‘When she entered the office, she found the lieutenant governor and her travel aide, Beatriz Ramos, in what can only be described as a compromising position.’

Fox News:

Florida’s lieutenant governor resigned and nearly 60 other people were charged in a scandal involving a purported veterans charity that authorities said Wednesday was a front for a $300 million gambling operation.

The organization, Allied Veterans of the World, runs nearly 50 Internet parlors with computerized slot machine-style games, which are normally legal in Florida if most of the proceeds go to charity.

But investigators said the organization’s executives gave precious little to veterans and lavished millions on themselves, spending it on boats, beachfront condos and Maseratis, Ferraris and Porsches.
