Robert Bentley Proves Mike Pence Right

Yesterday, the Alabama House of Representatives’ Judiciary Committee was holding a hearing regarding the impeachment of Governor Robert Bentley.

This was one of multiple political and criminal investigations into various ethics, campaign finance, and corruption charges relating to his affair with a much younger married senior political advisor, and subsequent divorce from his wife of 50 years. The Speaker of the House of Representatives had referred to the conclusion of the impeachment hearings as something everyone knows is coming, and had called for the Governor’s resignation – along with the President Pro Tem of the Senate, and the Alabama Republican Party’s Steering Committee. By the end of the day, he’d been arrested and pled guilty to multiple charges. He is no longer Governor, having resigned in disgrace.
