Florida Lt. Governor had Lesbian Affair with Top Aide, Filing Claims

A Latina aide to the lieutenant governor of Florida has been caught up in a sex scandal involving her boss.
A former employee of Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll claims the Sunshine State's second in command had a tryst with top aide Beatriz Ramos, and even caught them in a "compromising position" inside Carroll's office.

Thanks Florida.

Another attempt by Dumbocrats to take down a strong Republican by smearing their name with facts and discrediting them based on their actions. It's pathetic to see these worms operate in such an ingenuous manner.

Implications...

The Lt. Governor is resigning under dark clouds of scandal(s) and portents of criminal investigation.  Rick Scott is "shutting down the office" as part of his whole "I cut spending" persona but is also INVOLVING himself in what looks like a corrupt politician going down*, therefore involving himself in the suspicions of wrongdoing.

Also, the imagery of rats abandoning a sinking ship, a madman drunk with power pretending his erstwhile allies never existed by removing their chairs and ignoring their positions.  While it's fanciful and inaccurate it's still fun.

Moreover, if we're allowed to indulge in conspiracy theories he's "shutting down the office" (which i suspect actually costs money given it can't stay shut down for long) which doubtless includes shredding documents, wiping hard drives, and otherwise destroying evidencesecuring proprietary data, including data that could get him and his cronies thrown in jait.

I couldn't get your link to work so I went to the main Orlando Sentinel page and it is farking astonishing that I couldn't find anything about this story there.  The Lt. Governor of your State is under criminal investigation and it is apparently not as important as concussions in girl's lacrosse.

That's Florida for you.

What really makes me grudgingly envious of Governor Scott's political-fu is how he can act just like a sociopathic amoral douchebag out for his own enrichment at the expense of the commonwealth, and yet people still think he's a Real American businessman busy stickin' it to the libs.

Don't forget making sure those darn welfare leeches get drug tests before they get any precious precious state money for you know food/shelter.

I'm sure he didn't make any money off it.  His wife might've, hey, he can't control *that*.

Not to be a dick, but you should probably add some commentary as to what about this quote makes you feel it is significant.   Otherwise we have to ass-u-me  what you mean.

I probably actually agree with you but I can't know for sure.

I wonder how much that Republican administration will spend on hiding records.

Romney staff spent nearly $100,000 to hide records

Mitt Romney spent nearly $100,000 in state funds to replace computers in his office at the end of his term as governor of Massachusetts in 2007 as part of an unprecedented effort to keep his records secret, Reuters has learned.

Let's face it. 47% of americans tried to elect an amoral douchebag out for his own enrichment at the expense of the commonwealth thinking he was a Real American businessman sticking it to the libs FOR PRESIDENT. The divide between the REAL AMERICANS and the rest is only widening.

In Florida, the Lt. Gov cruises in an Escalade, driven by troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol.
