Anadarko Couple Arrests Linked to Fla. Lt. Gov. Resignation

Posted: Updated:

ANADARKO Okla_ The arrest of an Anadarko couple is linked to Wednesday's resignation of Florida's Lieutenant Governor.

Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll announced her resignation today. Her chief of staff, Adam Hollingsworth, said Carroll resigned, so her ties to "Allied Veterans of the World" would not be a distraction for the administration.

The connection is, on Tuesday, Chase Burns of Anadarko turned himself in to Caddo County authorities. Authorities accused Burns of making $290M by supplying software to Allied Veterans for use in illegal gambling operations. His wife, Kristin, was also arrested.

Both are charged in Oklahoma with being fugitives from justice. Chase Burns denies any wrongdoing. His father, former District Attorney Tony Burns, serves as his attorney and said Chase sold software to Allied Veterans but did nothing illegal.

Burns has been released on $500,000 bond. His wife Kristin is free on $100,000 bond.

Burns is also the brother of Brett Burns, the former Stephens, Jefferson, Grady and Caddo County District Attorney.

    An underfunded, little-known Democratic candidate for governor has a new tool to use in attacking the Republican incumbent after the federal government stripped Oklahoma of authority to decide how to spend millions in education funding because of the state's repeal of national academic standards.
