MONTGOMERY—An ethics complaint has been filed against Gov. Robert Bentley’s former senior advisor, Rebekah Caldwell Mason, by State Representative Johnny Mack Morrow (D-Red Bay), stating she improperly influenced legislative actions.
Morrow says this animosity Mason has shown towards him began 25 years ago when, as a student in his economics class, she was unhappy with the grades she received.
In the complaint, Morrow recounts actions surrounding a local bill that applied only to Franklin County, a bill that Gov. Bentley had publicly and privately said he would sign. When speaking to alreporter.com, Morrow said, “She was pillow-talk lobbying…that’s caused the problem.”
