Impeachment Proceedings Begin For Alabama Governor

On Monday, impeachment proceedings against Alabama Governor Robert Bentley over a relationship with a former aide were scheduled to begin on Monday, just one day after Alabama Republican Party leaders called for the governor's resignation. Bentley, a two-term governor, has vowed not to resign and has denied any involvement in anything illegal. In a recent report, the House Judiciary Committee accused Bentley of ordering state law enforcement officers to track down copies of an embarrassing recording that suggested an affair with Mason, who has resigned. The report also accused the 74 year-old governor of retaliating against an official who had discovered the relationship. On Wednesday of last week, the Alabama Ethics Commission claimed that Bentley probably violated ethics and campaign finance laws.
