Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll Says She's Sorry for Saying That Ridiculous Thing About Lesbians
Well, Carroll issued an apology yesterday to Equality Florida director Nadine Smith because
Carroll wrote the apology in a letter to Equality Florida, a group dedicated to equal rights for gays and lesbians:
It is wrong and inexcusable to make a comment that hurts people, and that was not my intention. As a Christian, my faith guides me to love and respect all people. The false charges that have been lodged against me are no excuse for what I have said.Carroll personally called Smith, who is Equality Florida's executive director, to issue a mea culpa over the phone. Smith responded to the apology on her blog:
I want to thank Lt. Governor Carroll for taking responsibility for her words and for responding to the harm those words inflicted.This whole mess started last week when a Tampa 10 reporter confronted Carroll about the accusations "lodged" against her. But then Carroll opened her mouth hole and dumb things came out, and now here we are with the proverbial apology spin.
