The disgraced Robert Bentley stepped down as the Governor of Alabama on Monday.
In June 2014, Bentley engaged in a sexual affair with a staffer and the entire ordeal was caught on an audio tape.
After denying the allegations for years and using taxpayer money to try and suppress the incident, Bentley finally stepped down on Monday.
“The time has come for me to look at new ways to serve the people of our great state. I have decided it is time for me to step down as Alabama’s governor.”
Bentley’s wife also left him, citing an “irretrievable breakdown” as the reason for divorcing Bentley.
This is the same governor that called for President Donald Trump to stop campaigning when he was going through his leaked audio tape scandal. Perhaps Bentley should have taken his own advice, especially given the fact that he actually engaged in a sexual affair with another woman while he was married.
As they say, once a cheater, always a cheater. Alabama will be much better off with a new governor that understands the importance of proper family values.
