TALLAHASSEE Former Florida lieutenant governor Jennifer Carroll is getting a new job.

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

A company press release added that Carroll is expected to become president and 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.
