Drip. Drip. Drip.
A Democratic lawmaker from Red Bay has filed an ethics complaint against Rebekah Caldwell Mason,alleging she used her romantic relationship with Gov. Robert Bentley to persuade him to veto a series of bills.
Rep. Johnny Mack Morrow, D-Red Bay, said Mason, who has since resigned her position as Gov. Bentley’s chief advisor, improperly influenced legislative actions through her close relationship with the governor. Bentley admitted last month he made improper comments to Mason, a married mother of three. Both Bentley and Mason have denied having a physical affair despite recorded statements by the governor in which he references touching her breasts and buttocks.
Morrow said Mason has shown animosity towards him ever since she was a student in his economics class at Northwest Community College 25 years ago. Morrow said Mason received a grade she was unhappy with and has “harbored harsh feelings towards me personally after all these years.”
Morrow alleges Mason used her “considerable” influence with the governor to persuade him to veto two of his bills that would have allowed Franklin County educators to be armed, bills the governor had previously indicated he would sign. The House and the Senate both eventually voted to override Bentley’s veto.
“Recent events and statements by several individuals have made it clear that Rebekah Caldwell Mason is an extremely vindictive, manipulative person and at that time was functioning as the de-facto governor,” Morrow said. “Her romantic ties with the governor were now controlling his every action.”
Johnny Mack Morrow should resign for not pointing this out earlier…
Former President Bill Clinton was involved in a heated exchange with Black Lives Matter protesters Thursday at a Hillary Clinton campaign event in Philadelphia, where he was forced to defend his record as president and his wife’s past statements.
For almost 15 minutes Clinton sparred with protesters who objected to the 1994 criminal justice reform bill he signed into law as president that increased prison sentences for a number of gang-related offenses. Black Lives Matter activists claim the bill disproportionately hurt African-Americans.
A visibly agitated Clinton told the protesters that the bill helped crack down on gangs who were killing African-American children.
“I talked to a lot of African-American groups. They thought black lives mattered. They said take this bill because our kids are being shot in the street by gangs. We had 13-year-old kids planning their own funerals,” Clinton said.
One protester yelled that “black youth are not super predators” – a reference to a statement Hillary Clinton made as first lady. The former president shot back.
“I don’t know how you would characterize the gang leaders who got 13-year-old kids hopped up on crack and sent them out onto the streets to murder other African-American children, maybe you thought they were good citizens,” Clinton said, his face turning increasingly red. “She didn’t.”
A new Instagram video from Trump featured a clip of the Texas senator talking about New York’s values at an old debate.
“Everyone understands that the values in New York City focus around money and the media,” Cruz said in the clip.
The ad then cut to footage of New York after the 9/11 terror attacks overlaid with Trump talking about how the city came together after the attacks.
“I saw something that no place on Earth could have handled more beautifully, more humanely than New York,” Trump said in the ad.
The video ended with white text on a black screen that read: “New York values are American values.”
Remember until Donald Trump appeared, NY was seen as the center of ridiculous policies the media pushed on the world and now we have conservatives pretending we need to push New York Values…
But we don’t need to tell you that…
He’s up big in New York, you make what you will about “New York Values”….
The church will not judge anymore or something…
