Allied Veterans internet cafe managers arrested

-A A +A

Only 2% of the take went to veterans

By The Staff

Allied Veterans of the World, a group that once had an internet cafe located north of Chiefland last year, is being accused by a multi-state task force of Florida and federal officials of being an illegal gambling business.

The local, state and federal law enforcement officials and prosecutors who announced on March 13 that  57 individuals are being charged for their roles in an organized $300 million conspiracy orchestrated by Allied Veterans of the World, according to a task force press release.  And, although not charged, Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll, resigned the day of the announcement after being questioned by investigators with the task force. Her public relations firm did business with Allied Veterans. 

The task force has also said that out of the $300 million taken in, $90 million went to pay the officers of the business that touted itself as a non-profit group helping veterans and only 2 percent of the $300 million actually went to help veterans and veterans organizations.
