Giggling nervously, Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll spoke publicly for the first time on Saturday about allegations from a former aide that she caught Carroll having lesbian sex with another female aide.
Speaking to Channel 10 News in Tampa Bay -- at the opening of Mitt Romney's campaign headquarters there -- Carroll explained that she couldn't be gay because she's been married to a man for 29 years ("My husband doesn't want to hear that. He knows the type of woman I am. I mean, my kids know the type of woman I am") and that -- giggling -- "usually black women that look like me don't engage in relationships like that." Giggle.
