New Alabama Attorney General Brings Renewed Attention to Bentley Investigation
Alabama Attorney General's Office
Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall
Investigations of possible wrongdoing by Gov. Robert Bentley are getting renewed attention now that the legislature is back in session and the state has a new attorney general. Steve Marshall was sworn in as attorney general Monday after being appointed by the governor. Marshall recused himself from any direct investigation of Bentley and appointed a former prosecutor to oversee the probe. In that process, Marshall did something his predecessor, Sen. Luther Strange, refused to do. Marshall confirmed that there is an investigation related to the governor. We talk about this, and efforts to impeach the governor, with Alabama Media Group columnist John Archibald.
