The 2017 Alabama Legislative Session is over, and these are some key points to take away.
The biggest loser, by far, was former Governor Robert Bentley. The Legislature got an awful lot of help from this newer, stronger, bolder version of the Alabama Ethics Commission. But, it was evident that Bentley was going to be impeached and removed once Special Counsel Jack Sharman released his report. Bentley resigned halfway through the first day of the House Judiciary Committee hearings. If the House and Senate had to waste weeks on his impeachment, given the 30-day Legislative meeting limit, the Session would have been a disaster.
