The woman accused of being a lot more than just a political adviser to Governor Robert Bentley has resigned amidst the sex scandal that continues to enthrall the state of Alabama.
Rebekah Mason stepped down Wednesday days after audio recordings of alleged sexual conversations between Bentley and Mason were leaked to the press.
“I have resigned as Senior Political Advisor to Governor Bentley and will no longer be paid from his campaign fund. I have also ended my work with the Alabama Council For Excellent Government. My only plans are to focus my full attention on my precious children and my husband who I love dearly. They are the most important people in my life. Thank you for your prayers for our family.”
Last week in a press conference described as “awkward” and “shaky,” Alabama Governor Robert Bentley denied having a physical or sexual relationship with Mason.
His denials continued Wednesday morning at a press event to tout rural broadband in Alabama.
“I have never done anything illegal.”
Spencer Collier, who was fired by Bentley, detailed the scandalous relationship between Bentley and Mason, which has been rumored for years. Collier, speaking at a press conference last week as well, said he has seen text messages and heard audio recordings “of a sexual nature” between the two.
Bentley said he’s heard of these audio messages for years, but never has heard them.
