Slammed for Homophobic Comments

In July, Carroll came under fire by gay advocacy groups when a reporter asked if she could ever have a romantic relationship with a woman, to which she responded, "Black women who look like me don't engage in relationships like that." The controversy stemmed from accusations from Carroll's former employee that she witnessed the politician in a "compromising position" with her travel aide, Beatriz Ramos. (Photo: Tom Williams/Roll Call/GettyImages)
