Impeachment proceedings begin against Alabama governor
That’s what you get for being a “family values” governor in a sex scandal.
“The articles of impeachment will be presented today on Gov. Bentley,” State Rep. Ed Henry, who is leading the effort, told reporters at a news conference.
“We’ve never tried to impeach a governor before,” he said, adding that “the process begins today.”
On March 30, Henry announced that he would start the impeachment process against the governor, who admitted last month to making inappropriate and sexual comments to his top aide, Rebekah Mason, but denied having a physical relationship with her. On the same day, Mason resigned from her position as a senior political advisor to Bentley.
