Caught Another One

Yep, another family-values holier-than-thou Republican has been caught in flagrant hypocrisy.  This time it’s Gov. Robert Bentley of Alabama.

State Rep. Ed Henry, R-Hartselle, is moving to start impeachment against embattled Gov. Robert Bentley amid the scandal engulfing the governor’s office surrounding his former senior political adviser, Rebekah Caldwell Mason. If the House impeaches Bentley, it would bring the governor one step closer to being removed from office by the legislature.

House Minority Leader Craig Ford, D-Gadsden, confirmed to AL.com that Henry was planning on bringing the articles of impeachment against the governor as early as next week. Henry could not immediately be reached for comment.

Ford said “over half” of the House is in favor of impeachment. A majority is needed to impeach the governor.

I really don’t care what consenting adults do in private.  In fact, I don’t even want to know as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone or break the law.  But when someone has sold himself as a God-fearing Baptist deacon and stands behind laws that discriminate against consenting adults.

If he has any sense of decency, he’d find a reason to stop inflicting himself on the people of Alabama.
