Rebekah C. Mason and her husband have made almost $1 million during the Robert Bentley administration


Rebecca and Jon Mason
Governor Robert Bentley's mistress and her husband have received almost $1 million in government-related payments since Bentley became Alabama governor in 2011.

Rebekah Caldwell Mason, whose affair with the governor led to First Lady Dianne Bentley's divorce complaint last Friday, has been paid $426,978.43 via her Tuscaloosa-based company, RCM Consulting. Those campaign expenditures are shown at the Alabama Secretary of State Web site.

Records at open.alabama.gov show that Mason has received $161,571.67 in state funds during the Bentley administration. Those payments--in fiscal years 2011, 2012, and 2013--were listed mostly as "personnel costs," with a small amount for "out of state travel."

That brings total payments, to Rebekah Mason or her company, to $588,550.10.

The total expands considerably when you consider payments to Jon Mason, Rebekah's husband, in his role as director of the Governor's Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. Bentley appointed Jon Mason as director in 2011, and the office since has morphed into servealabama.gov.

At the "About Serve Alabama" Web page, the office's mission states:

ServeAlabama is a state agency under the office of the Governor of Alabama.

Serve Alabama, The Governor’s Office of Faith-Based and Volunteer Service works to increase an ethic of service and volunteerism in the State of Alabama, strengthen the capacity of Alabama’s faith and community-based organizations, and promote collaboration among individuals and organizations striving to meet some of the greatest needs in our state.

We Serve Alabama in the following ways:

We serve as the Alabama State Service Commission, granting and administering (10) State AmeriCorps Programs across Alabama.

We are the state’s lead agency for Volunteer and Donations Management after disasters. Our work in this role includes response to Hurricanes Ivan and Katrina, Deepwater Horizion Spill and the April 2011 tornadoes.

We serve as a liaison to the state for faith-based and community-based non-profit groups.

We administer FEMA’s Disaster Case Management Program for survivors of the April 2011 storms.

We administer the Governor’s Emergency Relief Fund.

We administer ReadyAlabama.gov, Alabama’s statewide disaster preparedness campaign.

Our role is to serve the people of Alabama and carry out the goals and objectives of the Governor’s Office of Faith-Based and Volunteer Service through partnerships, integrity, and a sense of community.

How is Jon Mason, as a former weatherman at WVUA in Tuscaloosa, qualified to head such an agency? That remains unclear, but public records show he has been paid well with taxpayer dollars. For FY 2014, the most recent full fiscal year on record, Mason received $94,673.27. It looks like he will be pushing a six-figure salary when FY 2015 is completed.

Jon Mason's total compensation during the Bentley years is $393,539.82. When you add that to Rebekah Mason's haul, you get a total of $982,089.92--and our sources say the official numbers do not represent all funds paid to the Mason family under Bentley.

Alabama is in the midst of a budget crisis, with reports that 15 state parks will be closed and statewide driver's license bureaus will be reduced to four.

But at least someone has profited nicely under Robert Bentley's leadership. And that is the Rebekah and Jon Mason family of Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

How about you leave Jon out of this. He's being paid a state salary just like any other director that's the head of a state agency. Some directors make even more than him. If all is true Jon is a victim of the situation just as well as the First Lady. They both trusted their spouses to work closely together and both are devastated to learn something inappropriate was going on.

I don't disagree that the state needs more money. But until they address waste, like this, why should I vote for increased taxes?

You are either nuts or one brave news blotter. I believe you are brave, that you are trying to bring to light the crimes of our state leaders. My hat is off to you for taking a stand. So far as I can see you are the only one to write/ask the questions many of us would like answered. Why the other big time news reporters are not writing about this I do not understand? Are we to the point here in Alabama that this type of action along with the speaker of the house and his 23 count indictment,just another day at the office? I mean we turned over a million stones trying to find were the president had been born even after he was elected by the people. These guys here in Bama, Hubbard & the governor told us they were better than this, that they were not crooks, that they did believe in God, family values. It looks like we have been fooled again. Only this time they used God and the Good Book to fool us. I pray that there is someone here in Alabama that will look into this. If the governor has used our tax dollars to support a girlfriend, then he needs in the same cell as our other governor. It is past time to clean house here in bamaland. These lawmakers need to be run out of town on a rail, sweep the state clean!!!!!

Al.com reports that Dianne Bentley was so p-ssed at hubby/guvvy that she almost did not attend his inauguration back in January. Their sons also almost stayed away. But al.com still can't bring themselves to report on the affair, the money trail, etc. I guess Mrs. Bentley was just "going through a phase" back then.

Memo to 10:28 --

Send me an e-mail and ID yourself and contact info, and I would be glad to discuss my health, mental or otherwise--and I also would like to ask you a few questions about your mental health. Your comments display signs of several possible personality disorders, so we can make that a part of our discussion. Look forward to hearing from you. (Based on the digital information you've left with each of your comments, I'm I know who you are, and where you are, anyway. But still would be interesting to see if you have the guts to ID yourself on your own. Of course, we all know you won't, so it's nice that I know who you are, and where you are, without you having to tell me. Ever heard of geolocation? It can be your friend; it's certainly my friend. Thanks for visiting, and I hope this helps bring you peace of mind; after all, I'm "nuts.")

I know this looks very, very bad, but weren't most of the funds paid to RCM Consulting for political advertising, meaning that Mason would have had to turn around and spend the money on buying the actual ads?

Yes, I noticed that, too, @11:36. Kyle goes lower than cheap shots; he resorts to absolute falsehoods. I posted a comment, challenging him to answer several questions, which I'm sure he won't be able to do because it would take a little effort--and the answers wouldn't fit his agenda. No wonder al.com is going out of business, even though it has no competition.

Thank you Legalschnauzer for having the balls to bring some light to this situation. I don't care if Gov had an affair, I'm certainly surprised viewing his pics and TV appearances but the money is obviously very good. I guess we could call the
Divine Ms. M. a high class prostitute. However, I am incensed that all this "milehighing" that was going on was on state equipment, using taxpayer money and that the cheaters were being protected by a state trooper that also benefitted to the tune of 250,000$.
If these allegations are untrue, why do the Dr. and "the Divine Ms. M" refuse to make a comment, emphatically deny and threaten legal action? Guess they can't.
As to the totally mean spirited commenter that called you "nuts", karma is a bitch. People sometimes need the help of mental health professionals and facilities. It doesn't mean that they are "nuts", it means that they are temporarily unable to cope with a difficult situation or mental health issue.
Mr. Mean Spirited, I would define you as a narcissistic sociopath, with personality disorder. Perhaps you should seek professional help also.

I'm just wondering when the national news media will come calling? Will "The Enquirer" be first to "break the story?" I keep remembering the good christian governor of South Carolina, Mark Sandford, and the sleaze factor that played out in national media. I don't think this fiasco can be buried -- well, anywhere except maybe in Alabama. Of course, if there is taxpayer money inappropriately used, then it should be investigated here...but "crickets."

The hypocrisy of Bentley and his bunch is pathetic. This state is floundering, while all these dysfunctional, lying hypocrites in charge are laughing all the way to the bank.

And to all the people who think Bentley is innocent, why do you think his wife of 50 years just can't stand him anymore? It's not because they have grown apart. LOL! She was being made a fool of and he was carrying on and wasting our tax dollars, on a woman young enough to be his daughter, and giving cushy, high paying jobs to her husband. Bentley is just too dumb to see he was being used, as well.

They should all resign and get lost before this story really explodes.

I'd like to know why this information hasn't been given to bigger news sources such as CNN and ABC news. If not he will never be investigated, admit or resign. Our state is already broke and he is a good reason why it is. He will continue to bully the legislature and the great people of this state. He is doing nothing but running this state in the ground while he gets rich. It's all about what he wants when he wants it and NOTHING about the people who placed him in office. He took an oath when he was placed in office. Please for goodness sake pass this information on to bigger news sources. Put pressure on him for his resignation!

I was all for Bentley for reelection, until the days after the election, when he let the bomb drop about the horrible problems the state faced. He should have mentioned it during the election race, but he knew people would be upset, and that would be a problem. Now, I say "Karma really is a bitch", and let the chips fall where they may. When you threaten Medicare patients who already exist, you could possibly be evil! Or a politician. Either way, how dare you toy with the poorest of the poor! It is jerks like you who hope for an immediate reaction so we can "stop this from happening!" How about we stop you from any more damage to this state! The Democratic Party in this state has all but been declared DOA, but hideous events like this gives them a little breathing room

Please, before you harm the GOP more than anyone else in recent memory (this is Alabama, remember) just step down and disappear into that quite night. You have apparently been a liar for a while.

I don't want to see families upset at all, but don't run for office and then mess around! I feel sorry for the current Mrs. Bentley, but go on girl! Way to be strong after all this time!

This is a great state, and will be better when Bentley isn't in charge. Unfortunately, Kay Ivey is hiding in the shadows. Elections do have consequences, as we can see on a national level.

Such a disappointment. Apparently you not taking a salary hasn't affected how much you pay all of your "underlings".

Have a nice day.

Monique Rawlings said...

wow he was banging his married staffer and she got paid big bucks for her sex service. Nice to how how the GOP lawmakers work their power. Now the Governor took office and paid for sex with State money. I feel bad for his wife of 50 years and learn this and likely this is just the first time he got caught.

In my humble opinion, no one should ever trust what a lawyer says! Lawyers and doctors work together, so of course they will say and do anything to help their case. I read a post that Roger witnessed a man jump to his death in jail. I think anyone in his right mind would be traumatized by what the Shulers were subjected to.

Is the Bubba comment making light of sexual assault? Does perpetuating the stigma of mental illness help anyone? Roger is crazy like a fox!

This is similar to John Edward and Rielle Hunter. I guess he thinks Alabama's state's rights arguments include money to the mistress. I can imagine that somewhere hidden deep in the tax code, there is a federal and state (where it applies) mistress/Ashley Madison tax credit.

The thing about this affair is that the keeper of the crypt with the corpse-face has spent nearly a million dollars on it. A big portion of which is coming from taxpayer money . . . and now he's calling a special session with the express purpose of raising taxes! He could have probably built a few roads or bought a few textbooks for schools with that million dollars. And there is no innocent party here. It isn't Clinton and a young impressionable Monica Lewinsky. It is between a grown woman with a family and children who also has a history of affairs. And she and her husband have all used their cunning to make a profit off of all of this. Bentley has the satisfaction of "reliving" his youth at the taxpayers' expense and she gets to laugh all the way to the bank, also at the taxpayers' expense. They really thought they had it made, but the wife finally threw a wrench in it with her divorce claim. I think as far as the wife is concerned, she's had enough and wants to get her money while there is still some to be had and be rid of the guy. She can play the game, too and she's going to show them!

Roger, if you have a shred of evidence to back up your allegations please publish them. So far I see nothing to prove anything that is being alleged in regard to Bentley et al. Yet you and others are publishing statements as if they were facts. Unless someone was with them every minute of every day how on earth would anyone have any proof of these salacious allegations? If it turns out to be factual, I don't think any of this is anyone's business. Live and let live.
I see nothing wrong with Bentley hiring people to provide services. These people are working for a living and providing services. If it weren't them it would be someone else providing the same services. What's the problem?
By the way, I don't know any of these people and have nothing whatsoever to gain by offering my opposing view in this venue. I just don't like roasting someone over private matters that have nothing to do with me or anyone except those directly involved.

Alabama has long operated under the "good ol' boy" system and unless you are a white, Republican, STRAIGHT, male then you are shit out of luck.

Thanks for sharing, @9:16. If she's hired Bobby Segall, that adds an intriuging new element to things. He was involved with criminal defense in Siegelman case and Alabama bingo case. Perhaps he's on board for possible criminal defense with RCM, although he practices several kinds of law? Will be interesting to see what develops there.

I moved to Alabama 4 yrs ago for my career. I left a state up north (yes, I have learned to not capitalize the 'n') and was blindly naive until I started listening to Dale Jackson and Matt Murphy. My new home state is no different than the one I happily left behind. Sordid politics are not state or region specific. Same stuff, different Zip code. This entanglement is reminiscent of General Petraeus and Paula Broadwell. How does a man still call himself a man and permit his wife to openly, repeatedly cuckold him? Is money so highly prized? Scott Broadwell and Jon Mason need to kick some ass and leave their admitted harlots at the curb with the trash. I'm married more than 40 years and nothing like this would result in anything but a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage.

'Becky' just had to show off her new (overpriced with customs duty) Burberry scarf and brelly. I'm guessing this trip to Old Blighty was her first. A conspicuous consumer, to be sure. SMH

I think it was Donald Watkins, @10:26, who reported that the Bentley admin gave a nice donation to the Alabama Press Association. Don't think I've ever heard of a governor doing such a thing, but maybe it has bought the mainstream press' silence on the matter. Maybe Bentley already was in the midst of an affair, or planning to be involved in an affair, so he wanted the press on his side.

If you have solid information of wrongdoing regarding Rob Riley, or any other member of Team Riley, feel free to share the information via rshuler3156@gmail.com or we can arrange a time to talk by phone. This probably is the only news site in Alabama that will take allegations against Team Riley seriously. That doesn't mean we automatically publish such allegations, but we will investigate.

I have decided that the Masons were in this together. When they saw that the Gov was attracted to Rebekah, they cooked up a scheme to enrich themselves. Hubby turned a blind eye because they saw a way to make a boat-load of money. They have now left the state as soon as she has landed a job in another state. If hubby had not been in on the plan, he would have divorced her as soon as it hit the fan.
