Preface-Gov. Robert Bentley could not vote for Trump because of Trump's lewd comments. Keep that in mind.www.thegatewaypundit.com...

Gov. Robert Bentley is throwing in the towel (part of a sweetheart legal deal), he got caught spending state $$$ improperly, and having a inappropriate relationship with John Mason's wife. John works as the director of the Governor’s Office of Faith-based and Volunteer Service. Classy, Oh the old Gov. used state $$$$ to cover up the affair with Mrs. Mason.


Embattled Gov. Robert Bentley this afternoon agreed to a deal that forced him to resign the office of governor, plead guilty to two misdemeanors and agree to never again hold public office.
In response, the state attorney general's office will not pursue other felonies against Bentley, including those referred for prosecution last week by the Alabama Ethics Commission.
Jon Mason also referred to his wife a “child of God.”

Sweet heart of a deal for Bentley, of course this sort of deal is for the rulers, this will not apply to you.


Bentley, as part of the deal, was expected to:

Resign immediately and leave public life.
Plead guilty to two campaign violations: converting campaign contributions for personal gain and failing to report campaign contributions.
Serve one year of probation.
Perform 100 hours of unpaid community service as a physician.
Repay the $8,912 his campaign spent on the legal fees of former aide Rebekah Mason, whose involvement with Bentley led to the charges against him.
Forfeit all the money in his campaign account, which is currently $36,912. The money will go into state coffers.
In response, the state attorney general's office will not pursue other felonies against Bentley, including those referred for prosecution last week by the Alabama Ethics Commission.


Ut oh, out friendly Governor threatened and harassed people to keep his little secrets, secret. And of course used law enforcement to protect his reputation.


The report was damning, including sworn testimony from current and former state employees who claim they were harassed and threatened as Bentley sought to keep the affair secret.
Governor Bentley directed law enforcement to advance his personal interests and, in a process characterized by increasing obsession and paranoia, subjected career law enforcement officers to tasks intended to protect his reputation," the report states.

Nothing would have been brought up if he was in a gay relationship.

That's an interesting observation.

Now that you mention it, I can't think of a single instance where that has ever happened before with the intent to destroy someone's political career.

I'm not going to say anything about those, that might not be politically correct to say anything about gay activities.

I though it was just cheesy that he was buttering John Mason's wife. John works for the Gov. as the director of the of Faith-based and Volunteer Service.

Wow, how nice.

Really, I hear conservatives giving Barney Frank a ration of $h!t about his homosexuality all the time. A. Jones, Rush, Levin, plenty of AM radio personalities.

Hmmm. I don't watch or listen to very many of those people, they seem so cranky and overenthused all the time. I don't want to turn out like Trump.

Odd you should bring it up. Do you have inside information or something?

If news article is insider info then yes.

What a dirty-old-bird.

This part is too much:

They should have thrown the book at him.

Why? He probably would have embezzled and then dry-humped that too.

What brought him down was his inability to use new fangled technology. iCloud was a mystery. The depositions were damn good reading. He was a good man until he got messed up with a younger woman. He started ordering Viagra in his wife's name. Lawd mercy.

Those are politicians that were closeted homosexuals.

I think the scenario he was referencing and that I was referring to is an openly gay and married politician caught cheating in an extramarital and homosexual affair.

I know... apples & oranges.
