Governor Who ‘Could Not’ Vote for Trump over Sexual Comments Resigns Over Sex Scandal with Former Aide

Alabama Governor Robert Bentley said he could not vote for Trump after hearing Trump make joking comments about groping women. Well, things have a way of changing very quickly.

Per the AP:

Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley said he could no longer vote for Donald Trump in wake of the GOP presidential nominee’s sexually charged words about women.

Bentley comments came as state Alabama U.S. Reps. Martha Roby and Bradley Byrne, on Saturday called for Trump to step aside from the GOP ticket. Trump is under fire for his remarks about him groping women in a 2005 recording.

Roby was one of the first Republicans to speak out against Trump on Saturday, leading what would soon be a chorus of voices against the GOP nominee.

“Now, it is abundantly clear that the best thing for our country and our party is for Trump to step aside and allow a responsible, respectable Republican to lead the ticket,” Roby said in a statement. “Hillary Clinton must not be president, but, with Trump leading the ticket she will be.”

The resignation of Governor Bentley is expected to happen today. Audio was discovered where Bentley was describing how he placed his hands on an aide’s breasts.

He also sent many texts to the aide, named Rebekah Mason.
