Audio released after Governor Bentley denies affair allegations

(WAFF) -

While the Alabama lawmakers are trying to pass a budget and deal with other serious issues in Montgomery, their legislative matters are being overshadowed by the political fallout involving accusations about Governor Bentley. Good morning. Trent Butler here. 

Former ALEA chief Spencer Collier claims he was fired because he wouldn't lie for Governor Bentley in the ethics violations case involving Mike Hubbard. Collier also said he has proof that Governor Bentley was having an affair with his top advisor Rebekah Mason. This morning, we will let you hear part of an audio tape that Collier says is proof Governor Bentley was having an inappropriate relationship with Mason.  

Governor Bentley held his own press conference and admitted to saying inappropriate comments about Mason but maintained that his relationship with her has never been a physical one. The Governor apologized to the families involved and asked all Alabamians to forgive him for making the comments. Governor Bentley says he did not misuse any state funds during this time and claims he has not violated any state laws.  

We also want you to be weather aware today since this is a First Alert Weather Day. David Ernst is tracking the chance for severe storms, damaging winds and the possibility of tornadoes. We have a lot to cover this morning. Please join us for WAFF 48 News Today.
