How Long Before Alabama’s Aging Lothario–Governor Robert Bentley–Resigns?

March 31, 2016

There is a clock ticking in Alabama.    The man who loved to hold the breasts of his mistress is surely knowing the days for his term in the governor’s mansion of Alabama are coming to a close.

Governor Robert Bentley is neck deep in a political firestorm that is rocking his state following the allegations of an affair with a top aide.   As all those in public life do when confronted with the breaking of marriage vows the governor denied the affair.

Well isn’t that special!

Meanwhile his senior advisor whose breasts he loved to hold–as heard about in the released secret audio recording–did resign.

And now there is vocal outpouring around the southern state for the 73-year old governor to resign, too.

At the heart of this matter are the sexually charged texts and recordings that showed the governor was having an affair two years ago.    The legal part of this–the criminal part I should underscore–would be if our aging lover-boy used state resources or campaign funds to facilitate a relationship.

So why should we care about this?

Because here is one more stark reminder about conservative Republicans who run a family-oriented campaign to win election and then find it hard to keep their zipper in the upright position.  At the time of the affair this man–a deacon at his Baptist church–was still married.  His wife of 50 years filed for divorce from the old coot and for that this blogger gives a tip of the hat for making the correct call.

There is no way this man keeps the reins of power in Alabama.  He will be out of office in short order.

He has to smell the scent of political outrage when even state lawmakers from his own Republican party say they’ll draft recall or impeachment measures.  Ouch!  That must sting as much as getting your willy caught up in a statewide sex scandal.

Bye, Bye.

    That biblical definition simply referred to “heterosexual marriage”. It conveniently says nothing about heterosexual screwing around outside of the “marriage”. So, it’s all good.

    Unlike another former Southern governor, also an alleged adulterer, this fellow will never enjoy a fine cigar in the Oval Office.

    I guess he meant one woman at a time when he said this:
    Governor Bentley Releases Statement on Same-Sex Marriage Ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court

    Press Releases

       ✉

    MONTGOMERY—Governor Robert Bentley on Friday released a statement on the same- sex marriage ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court. The Governor’s statement is below.

    “I have always believed in the Biblical definition of marriage as being between one man and one woman. That definition has been deeply rooted in our society for thousands of years. Regardless of today’s ruling by the Supreme Court, I still believe in a one man and one woman definition of marriage. The people of Alabama also voted to define marriage as between a man and woman. I always respect the people’s vote, and I am disappointed that the Supreme Court has disregarded the choice made by the people of Alabama in its decision today.”
