July 8th, 2012 — Note: The Tallahassee O Received The Below Letter And Documents From One Of Our Readers In Which We Find It Interesting. We Cannot Prove Or Disprove The Below Allegations Based On The Letter And Documents Attached. However, we find the information interesting in which “Whistleblowers” often get retaliated against with bogus and false charges like “audio recording” a public official payed by tax payers while working in a public office. The false charge is often used as a cover-charge to discredit the person who was doing a public service of exposing corruption in government.
The Tally O doesn’t know the Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll nor Carletha Cole as the focus of this story. The Tally O does stand firmly that the Florida Statute of 934.03 (1A) for interception of oral communications of audio recording is an unconstitutional 1969 law that hasn’t had the proper legal challenge in federal court. The ACLU has been working on getting rid of this bogus law from the Florida Law Books. Unfortunately, many people that fall victim to these bogus laws and had them used as a tool for government retaliation don’t have the time, money and resources for a proper legal challenge. If you read the below articles, you will clearly see that this law has been declared a “Gray Area” with many questions raised meaning that we’d hardly consider anyone a criminal for exposing a conversation made by public officials in a public office. The Poly Graph Test is Not Admissable in a court of law but it makes you wonder what’s going on in the Governor’s offices. Official Reports show that a Fire did indeed start in the trashcan at one of the desks of an employee of the Governor’s Office.
Jennifer Carroll should resign or be impeached!
Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll, nepotism, fraternizing, and official misconduct
Florida Statue 838.022 – Official misconduct: said that it is unlawful for a public servant, with corrupt intent to obtain a benefit for any person or to cause harm to another, to: Falsify, or cause another person to falsify, any official record or official document; Conceal, cover up, destroy, mutilate, or alter any official record or official document or cause another person to perform such an act; or Obstruct, delay, or prevent the communication of information relating to the commission of a felony that directly involves or affects the public agency or public entity served by the public servant. Any person who violates this section commits a felony of the third degree.
Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll perhaps needs to read the statues. There is an epidemic of corruption on the political landscape. It is revolting that politicians overuse their position and abuse their power, for self-serving reasons at the expense of citizens; it’s no wonder, the State of Florida notoriously ranked #1 in political corruption.
Rick Scott’s infamous Lieutenant Governor Jennifer Carroll who has an extremely colorful history of creating cause for investigations and skirting accountability, is in hot water again. In her most recent escapade, it is obvious Jennifer Carroll has not learned anything from Clarence Thomas on office etiquette and the impediments of nepotism, and fraternizing.
In 2011, Carletha Cole observed the Lt. Governor and Bibi Ramos in a sexually compromising position which subsequently caused an attenuation in her relationship with the Lieutenant Governor and shaded the remainder of her tenure within the Lieutenant Governor’s Office and caused significant tension.
Now, Lt. Governor Carroll and her travel aide, Bibi Ramos is at the center of a felony investigation and cover up of a fire in the Executive Office of the Governor at Florida’s State Capitol. On March 17, 2011, the Lt. Governor summoned Investigator John Hamilton to her office for a closed door meeting to inform the investigator that Ms. Ramos admitted to starting the fire at the Capitol by placing a lit cigar in her (then) co-worker’s, Carletha Cole trashcan.
What took place next after that meeting with the Lt. Governor is absolutely gum smacking unbelievable. The investigator denied Ms. Cole’s request to dust the area for finger prints, moreover, Ms. Ramos’ explanation as to how she inadvertently set Ms. Cole’s office trashcan ablaze does not account for the partially burned cigar and match which was destroyed by Investigator Hamilton after he had received Ms. Ramos’defense through Lieutenant Governor Carroll on March 17th.
Investigator Hamilton interviewed Bibi Ramos four (4) days later (3/21/11), he closed the case, and then the Lt. Governor wrote him a letter of recommendation for a job on (3/21/11).
This is absolutely incredible that our Lt. Governor put nepotism before the law and protected Bibi Ramos. As per Florida Statue 806.01 any person who willfully and unlawfully, or while in the commission of any felony, by fire or explosion, damages or causes to be damaged; any dwelling, whether occupied or not, or its contents; any other structure that he or she knew or had reasonable grounds to believe was occupied by a human being, is guilty of arson in the first degree.
When will we hold these political leaders to ethical accountability? When will the law protect the innocent citizens in the State of Florida? When will law enforcement officers enforce the law for politicians? When will the justice system stop the noise of elected officials who are chanting Just Us! We must ban together and STOP this corruption from eroding our democracies.
Jennifer Carroll is now trying to have all official records and documents (attached) concealed. When cross examination of prior sexual activity is relevant to motive or bias, such testimony is not rendered inadmissible pursuant to Section 794.022(2), Florida Statutes. The testimony evidence is relevant to the defense insofar as this evidence shows that the Lieutenant Governor and Bibi Ramos have a motive and bias to distort evidence, plant evidence, fabricate evidence, destroy evidence, and have the opportunity and requisite influence to alter the normal course of a criminal investigation.
