(WAWS/CNN) - Florida Lieutenant Governor Jennifer Carroll is denying allegations that she was reportedly romantically involved with a female aide.
In a court filing, a former aide to Carroll says she walked in on the lieutenant governor and another aide in a quote "compromising position."
"It's not just a one person issue attacking, it's an entire family. My husband doesn't want to hear that," said Carroll. "I'm the one that's married for 29 years, the accuser is the one that's single for a long time, so, usually black women that look like me don't engage in relationships like that."
The former aide making the accusations was arrested last year on charges of illegally taping a conversation with the lieutenant governor's chief of staff without their knowledge.
