The beginning of the end for Robert Bentley’s tenure as Governor of Alabama is easy to pinpoint.
It came on Feb. 9, 2017, right around the time Bentley was strolling to a podium at the Alabama Department of Archives and History with then-Attorney General Luther Strange in tow. Bentley was planning to announce that he had selected Strange to fill the US Senate seat left vacant by newly appointed US Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
