Bentley No-Show At State Auditor Summons

Tuesday, May 3, 2016


Governor Robert Bentley, today, was a no-show at Alabama State Auditor Jim Zeigler's office following a summons. Zeigler said last month that an obscure piece of state code gives him the power to compel testimony under oath. He says he will seek pro bono legal representation or fundraise to pursue the matter in civil court. Governor Bentley last month acknowledged making inappropriate remarks to a senior female political adviser, who has since resigned. He denies misuse of his office. In April, Governor Bentley said the Alabama Ethics Commission was the appropriate venue for Zeigler's complaints. His office today had no further comment.
