From the WaPo article in the Politics tab:

Carroll was not charged with any wrongdoing. A public relations firm she once co-owned, 3 N& JC, did work for Allied Veterans. A Navy veteran who served in the Gulf War, Carroll also appeared in a TV ad in 2011 promoting the organization's work on behalf of veterans and their families.
Carroll said in a statement that neither she nor the public relations firm was targeted in the probe, and she stepped down so that her ties to the organization would not be a distraction for Republican Gov. Rick Scott's administration.

StrikitRich: lack of warmth: While I am not in favor of gambling, I do have to say for those that are bent on ruining their finances, legalize casinos in Florida.  If Florida doesn't want the big flashy style casinos, that's fine regulate them to be small and off the main drag.  A lot of snow birds are the casino patronizing types, so create some legal casino type money licensing and take their money.  Maybe then less of them will return to MI.

The 4th largest casino in the US is in Tampa and there are other Seminole Indian casinos spread out on their lands.


Well I would ask why there is an illegal gambling problem then, but it is Florida and falls under it is all stupid.  Carry on.

No dumber than Michigan based on all the MI tags I see around right now.

Alonjar:

Hey everybody, look! Its that asshole who uses uncommon acronyms without explaining them and expects everybody to either understand him, or thinks he's awesome and smart because he uses acronyms nobody else does!

Gee, it's a comment about politicians in Florida, several of whom are members of the Republican Party of Florida.

I wonder what RPOF could stand for? Is it a soft drink?
