Lt. Gov-elect Jennifer Carroll's ethics record may have looked squeaky clean compared to Gov-elect Rick Scott and his former company's record setting Medicare fraud, but it appears that Carroll's company may have been involved in scamming a government program too. The Florida Times-Union reports that Carroll's companies may have fudged records claiming to have an office in Duval County in order to take advantage of a government program.
Problem is that David Hodges, owner of Fine Tooth Comb Investigations, was actually operating a business from that address from 2003 until 2005. State records back him up, and he claims to have no knowledge of why Carroll's company would claim the space as their own.
