TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Newly released records show that former Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll changed her income tax filings after investigators asked about money she received from a purported veterans charity accused of running an illegal gambling operation.

Documents obtained by The Associated Press show that Carroll was paid nearly $100,000 by Allied Veterans of the World in 2009 and 2010 but she didn't report the total on her financial disclosure forms or to the Internal Revenue Service.

Carroll called the omissions an "oversight." She also said she returned "overpayments" to Allied.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement concluded that Carroll did not commit a crime but forwarded the case to the state's ethics commission to review.

She resigned in 2013 when the charity investigation became public.
