PolitiFact Florida reviews Jennifer Carroll's claim that "we didn't go out asking people" to join "stand your ground" task force

Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll said the task force convened by Gov. Rick Scott to review Florida's justifiable homicide policies after Trayvon Martin's shooting death is comprised of people who asked to be part of it.

"What we did was go to the individuals that seek our approval to be on the task force. We didn’t go out asking people," she said at an April 19 news conference. "They came to us with an interest in this review, and those are the people of the pool that we went and looked at, who would be best to serve on this task force given the diversity of the state."

A review by PolitiFact Florida found that wasn't the case for several members who attended the first meeting this week. Read our report here.
