Bentley brings Mason and unnamed special guest to Trump inaugurationBy Rebecca Rakowitz | 01/29/2017 10:52pm
Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley took former advisor Rebekah Caldwell Mason and her husband with him to Donald Trump’s inauguration last week, according to a report from Al.com. Mason was at the center of Bentley’s impeachment scandal, which included allegations that she was his mistress.
Spencer Collier, former head of the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency was the first to report a physical relationship between Bentley and Mason. These allegations were amplified following the release of an audio tape in which Bentley speaks of sexual activity with Mason.
Mason has since resigned and Diane Bentley, the governor’s wife of 50 years, has since divorced him.
Bentley traveled to the inauguration with Mason and her husband Jon Mason, director of Serve Alabama.
Bentley told journalists that the visit to Washington, D.C. was for more than just the inauguration. It was a work trip and Jon Mason was brought along to speak with national leaders on faith-based organization revitalization.
Also on the trip were Wesley Helton, legislative director; Zach Lee, Bentley’s liaison to cities and counties; and an unnamed special guest.
Bentley and his office declined to release the name of said special guest.
