Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll (R) apologized “for offending lesbians when she said black women who engage in those relationships don’t look like her,” the AP reports.
“Carroll, who was implying that black lesbians aren’t attractive, made the remarks more than a week ago when she was asked about court documents in which a fired staffer claims that she walked in on Carroll and a female travel aide in a compromising position. Carroll denies that claim.”
Said Carroll: “It is wrong and inexcusable to make a comment that hurts people, and that was not my intention.”
