MONTGOMERY— Governor Robert Bentley fired Alabama Law Enforcement Agency Secretary, (ALEA) Spencer Collier, effective immediately on Tuesday in a press released without so much as a call to his longtime friend.
In his press release, Bentley alleged wrongdoing on the part of Collier. Just yesterday, Collier responded that Bentley was incorrect, and he would welcome an investigation by the FBI or the Attorney General’s Office.
ALReporter.com can now confirm that the US Attorney’s Office for the Northern District is not investigating Collier, but the firings at ALEA and the closings of multiple criminal investigations, which are believed to have been ordered by Bentley and his unpaid senior advisor Rebekah Caldwell Mason.
