Alabama House committee to discuss Robert Bentley impeachment probe

Robert Bentley

The Alabama House Judiciary Committee, charged with investigating the articles of impeachment against Gov. Robert Bentley, will meet Tuesday afternoon.

There, they will hear an update from special counsel Jack Sharman.

They will also vote on several proposed changes to the committee’s rules of procedures, per Sharman’s suggestions.

Bentley, 73, this spring admitted making inappropriate remarks to his senior political adviser but denied accusations of an affair with her and of interfering in law enforcement business, accusations both raised by his fired law enforcement secretary. The legislative probe officially began in June, but it also began slowly, as lawmakers find their way through an impeachment process not used in a century.

Twenty-three representatives signed articles of impeachment in April, accusing Bentley of willful neglect of duty and corruption in office.
