TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- A criminal case against a former top aide to Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll now includes new allegations about improper relationships and widespread illegal taping.
    
The allegations were included in a court filing made by the attorney representing Carletha Cole. She was arrested last October on charges that she gave an illegally taped conversation with another Carroll aide to a newspaper reporter.
    
Cole's attorney made the allegations after prosecutors sought to keep confidential some information in the case.
    
In the filing, Cole contends that she witnessed the lieutenant governor and a top aide in a "compromising position" inside Carroll's office and that there was widespread taping going on.
    
Carroll, a former Navy officer who is married and a mother of three, called the allegations false and absurd.
