FL Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll Says “Women That Look Like Me” Are Not Lesbians

Attractive black women usually don’t engage in secret lesbian flings, says Florida’s Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll.

Responding to an accusation made by a former staffer, who claims to have walked in on the Republican politician and her travel aide in a compromising situation, Carroll denied any part in a lesbian sex scandal.

Speaking at the opening of a Mitt Romney campaign office, Carroll, 49, refuted the allegations, saying “usually black women that look like me don’t engage in relationships like that.”

The problem is that when you have these accusations that come out, it’s not just one person you’re attacking. It’s an entire family. 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. For twenty-nine years—I’m the one that’s married for twenty-nine years. The accuser is the one that’s been single for a long time. So usually black women that look like me don’t engage in relationships like that.

The ex-staffer, Carletha Cole, revealed she witnessed the alleged encounter after being arrested for leaking a recording of Carroll’s chief of staff to a Florida newspaper. So the story’s truthfulness shouldn’t be taken for granted.

But neither should the myth that attractive black women never have sex with other women.
