Ex-Melbourne Police Chief Arrested For Racial Profiling Supports Mitt Romney

Ex-Melbourne Police Chief Frank Carter supports the Mitt Romney for President campaign according to the Federal Election Commission's donor database.

FEC records show that Frank Carter donated $1,000 to the Mitt Romney for President campaign in 2007, followed by another donation of $250 this year.

The former Police Chief dominated local headlines after he was arrested by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in 2010 for allegedly making traffic stops based on racial profiling.  

The story carried over into 2011 when the State Attorney's Office dropped the charges and Frank Carter was later permitted to keep his law enforcement certification.

Frank Carter sued the City of Melbourne in May 2011.  The lawsuit is still pending.
