Impeach the Governor?

Well, there's a legislator from north Alabama that offered a bill to initiate proceedings to impeach Governor Bentley. Is this just tit for tat; or somehow does he interpret what the Governor may or may not have done as "moral turpitude?" Moral turpitude is not completely agreed upon as a concept; also standards of misconduct change with time.

I tend to prefer a 'live and let live' approach to things; and I wonder if some legislators are just going to spend a lot of the state's scarce money on what seems more like a personal vendetta.

After all, when the legislature is session, there's not a shortage of working girls! Holy hypocrisy, citizens!

But ultimately I see this as costly political grandstanding.

Sexy governor . . . .
