Ala. Gov. Robert Bentley
Overseas trips can be expensive, especially when you travel as a government official. AL.com reports today that Alabama Governor Robert Bentley, his wife, and members of his staff spent more than 232-thousand dollars to visit London and take in an international air show last summer. Private companies also contributed about 90-thousand dollars to the trip, which the governor’s spokesman says was an opportunity for Bentley to meet with international business leaders and encourage them to invest in Alabama.
