Alabama Governor Robert Bentley is refusing to release a set of documents to the press, a set of documents he recently turned over to an impeachment committee.
A spokeswoman for Bentley said Thursday that the materials “will not be made public at this time.”
Twenty three lawmakers signed impeachment articles against governor Bentley after his wife recorded and released audio of him making explicit comments to Rebekah Mason, an employee in his administration. The Governor admitted to having made inappropriate remarks, but denied having a “sexual” affair with the staffer. Reminding us a lot of this moment in American political history:
Now Governor Bentley is refusing to release certain documents, regarding his impeachment, to the press. Claiming that they are not a matter of public record; strange behavior from a man claiming to have nothing to hide.
