Florida Lt. Governor Apologizes for Homophobic Comments

Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll was accused of homophobia recently after she told a reporter she couldn't possibly engage in a lesbian relationship because, "Black women who look like me don't engage in relationships like that." On Friday, Carroll released a letter of apology to Equality Florida, a gay and lesbian advocacy group, saying that as a Christian woman, she strives to "love and respect all people." (Photo: Shealah Craighead)
