When Jon Mason answered the door to his home in Tuscaloosa on Friday morning, he was calm despite the scandalous whirlwind his wife, Rebekah Mason, has been embroiled in over the last two days. Mason said he was at a dentist appointment on Wednesday when Former ALEA Secretary Spencer Collier broke his silence and droves of reporters diverged on Montgomery looking into every aspect of his wife, who was alleged to have a sexual affair with the Governor.
Though he didn’t want to interview on camera, he sent us this written statement and stood by the Governor’s word that there was not a physical a relationship, but mistakes were made years ago.
On behalf of our family I would like to thank everyone for their prayers, and messages of unconditional love and grace over the past few days.
I wanted to share that I long ago resolved the personal issue playing out now for everyone this week. Please continue to support families, the governor, and our state with prayers as we all move forward.
I just want to tell everyone about my wife of nearly 20 years, Rebekah Mason. She is not a fictional character from a tv show or caricature created by assumptions and imagination. She’s my amazing wife of nearly 20 years, a loving and dedicated mom, a sweet compassionate daughter, a gifted 27-year communications professional, and friend. And most of all, like all of us, she’s a child of God.
We’ve always lived in a world of hate and anger, it’s just easier than ever to show it and share it. We can all just as easily show love.
This weekend is all about unconditional love. At the end of the day, we just have to show this love to others, every day. Love your neighbor, show kindness to people you don’t know, and love your family. Then get up and do it again tomorrow.
