Today Governor Robert Bentley resigned as Governor of Alabama and pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges. Thus ends an overlong, lurid saga in Alabama history that was marked by a series of government changes. His resignation completes the trifecta, following the resignation of House Speaker Mike Hubbard and the ouster of Chief Justice Roy Moore.
Following al.com, he became widely known as the "Luv Guv."
This saves a lot of expense, uncertainty, and spinning of wheels in the State governor. Finally, he did the right thing and put the rest of us out of our miseries.
Best wishes to new governor Kay Ivey.
