Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley got caught with his love hanging out on a digital recording of a conversation with former aide Rebekah Mason. That's not news. The sweet-talking governor was alarmed by his own ardor, saying "Well, I love you, I do. And ah, you know I just -- I worry sometimes I love so you much. I worry about loving you so much." He said love 14 times, but that wasn't all he said. He had a thing for Mason's left ear, wanting to kiss it and whisper something in "that sweet ear."
But that was so two-years-ago -- when the recording was made, according to Bentley. Bentley also said he was all talk -- there was no consummation of his desires. Though until Mason's resignation this week from her position as one of the governor's top aides, he presumably had ample opportunity to whisper in her ear. Mason issued a statement upon her departure. Calling her husband and children "the most important people in my life." Mason said, "Thank you for your prayers for our family."
