Alabama Supreme Court lifts Bentley impeachment stay

Mason quit the governor's office in March of a year ago, after accusations about the two became public. Montgomery Circuit Court Judge Greg Griffin, appointed by the governor in 2014, granted a 10-day TRO against the hearings after arguments Friday. Bentley said he's been told that will happen again. The justices had found that "the Alabama legislature is free to conduct its business as prescribed in the state constitution", he added.

Two top Republicans in the state have asked Bentley to step down.

"Days later, Governor Bentley called Linda Adams at home on a Saturday morning and said he was going to "fire Wanda".

The speaker of the Alabama house is calling on Alabama Gov.

"If the people want to know if I misused state resources, the answer is simply no". Those texts included Bentley writing to Mason "I can't take my eyes off of you". They were successful. Later, Bentley thought it was Hannah who created the tapes and asked Alabama Law Enforcement Agency leader Spencer Collier if any criminal statutes applied to her activity. Bentley said Monday that he had been humiliated as "embarrassing details" of his personal life were made public over the past year.

The report says "later that evening at a D.C. bar, Mason bragged that Governor Bentley had called and told her that he had opened his hotel room door to hotel staff while clad in boxers, believing Mason was on the other side.signs that the Bentley-Mason relationship had become romantic in nature occurred with greater frequency". Robert Bentley (R) to resign over a sex scandal, CNN reported.

Legal fighting over the TRO has raged since Friday morning, when lawyers argued before Montgomery County Circuit Judge Roman Shaul.

Sharman says the court doesn't have a right to interfere with the hearing process at this point.




It lays out in sometimes sordid detail an extra-marital relationship between the 74-year-old Bentley and political advisor Rebekah Caldwell Mason.

Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley's lawyers are in court in an attempt to block the release of a potentially embarrassing report related to a sex scandal and efforts to impeach him.

Bentley's attorneys in two court hearings Friday that the schedule adopted by the committee gave the governor little time to prepare a defense against allegations in a 131-page report released Friday afternoon.

Bentley, a former Baptist deacon, used the language of his religion during his Friday public appearance, acknowledging "personal struggles" and asking for prayer.

"Governor Bentley's loyalty shifted from the State of Alabama to himself", Sharman wrote in an executive summary.

The special counsel to the Judiciary Committee, Sharman, has said the committee hadn't violated any due process rights.

"It's disappointing to hear the committee will move forward while the Supreme Court is hearing the case", said Bentley attorney Ross Garber in a prepared statement.
