Alabama Lawmaker Says Majority Favor Impeachment

Alabama House Minority Leader Craig Ford (D) told the Birmingham News that Rep. Ed Henry (R) was planning on bringing the articles of impeachment against Gov. Robert Bentley (R) as early as next week and that “over half” of the House is in favor of impeachment. A majority is needed to impeach the governor.

Ford said he didn’t know what charges would be leveled against Bentley in the impeachment articles, but said the move is necessary because “the governor’s lost the trust of the people of Alabama.”
