Well, this is awkward.
The GOP Governor of Alabama, Robert Bentley, has resigned after audio recordings prove that he was involved in a sex scandal.
But let’s flashback a wee bit to October, 2016:
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.”

In 2015, Bentley and his wife divorced after 50 years of marriage. Recently, court documents were unsealed that revealed that Bentley had an extra-marrital affair with his communications director.
This posed some real problems for Bentley, besides exposing him as a lecherous, unfaithful pig.
Impeachment proceedings were beginning against Governor Robert Bentley amid accusations that he used state resources to hide the relationship with the top aide.
Watch him resign at the 30 minute mark:
Seems a lot worse than the ‘hot mic’ moment that Bentley got up on his high horse to denounce Trump about.
