Alabama Governor Robert Bentley, facing impeachment charges and four felonies stemming from campaign ethics violations and an embarrassing sex scandal, is expected to resign by the end of this week, according to The Alabama News.
The big picture: Bentley has had a noteworthy effect on politics outside of Alabama. As governor, he got to choose Luther Strange, who replaced Jeff Sessions in the Senate.
