Former Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll gets new job

TALLAHASSEE — Former Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll is getting a new job.

Global Digital Solutions announced it was hiring Carroll as a senior adviser. A spokesman for Carroll confirmed Wednesday that she accepted the job.

A company press release added that Carroll is expected to become president and company chief operating officer once a planned merger with Airtronic USA Inc. has been completed.

Carroll abruptly resigned from her post last month after she was questioned by law-enforcement authorities about work she did for Allied Veterans of the World. The charity has been accused of running an illegal gambling ring.

Carroll has not been accused of any wrongdoing.

Global Digital Solutions does engineering and technical consulting work. Airtronic is a design and manufacturing company that makes small arms such as grenade launchers.
