Former Gov. Robert Bentley emerged from the shadows this week, telling the Decatur Daily he decided to leave office rather than risk facing felony charges and losing his medical license.

“I was told that I was going to be charged, even though the grand jury had not met, that I was going to be charged with a felony for (two ethics violations related to his campaign finance account). If you have a felony, you lose your medical license, and I was not going to lose my medical license,” Bentley, who now owns a dermatology clinic in Tuscaloosa, told the Decatur Daily. “So, I agreed to (two misdemeanors) and walked away.”

In April, Bentley was booked on two misdemeanor charges — one for failing to file a major contribution report and another for knowingly using campaign contributions for personal use — in the midst of  a corruption and willful neglect of duty investigation against him, a month after he acknowledged making inappropriate remarks to a female political adviser, Rebekah Caldwell Mason. Upon pleading guilty, he resigned from the Governor’s office.

When asked about Mason, Bentley said told the Decatur Daily, “I still see her occasionally.”

  8. Displaying yourself being a professional, in contrast to just
    someone aiming to rent a home, goes a long way towards assisting you to
    look for a quality renter. Another method to protect yourself like a property investor is as simple as properly choosing what your organization entity should be.

    The requirement for property will forever outstrip that regarding supply and thereby always fueling an upturn in home based

  9. These men became billionaires simply because they built mega businesses and used marketing ebay as leverage to purchase other businesses.
    For those still committed to Equities and Bonds, they have got
    seen their returns disappear and be replaced by higher numbers
    of volatility. Rather, this suggestion should perhaps be, inside extreme, the place where a newborn should use a zero allocation to bonds, along
    with a centenarian a 100% allocation to bonds.

  10. Maintenance is an additional area that could be lessen, because less property to take care of translates into less overall
    spent. So, you need to develop and work like an adult and repent from
    your foolishness of inferior thinking. They then need to write inspection reports that are essential to maintain the safety of buildings.
