To "Doctor Love" Bentley, putting his "hands under" aide Rebekah Mason is not a form of sexual activity




Dr. Robert Bentley has proven he is not much of a governor for Alabama, but he sure has potential as a highly creative sex educator.

Bentley acknowledged at a press conference yesterday making "inappropriate remarks" to aide Rebekah Caldwell Mason, but he denied the two had engaged in "sexual activity." But an audio recording published at multiple news outlets has Bentley talking fondly to Mason about "putting my hands under you." He also says, "When I stand behind you, and I put my arms around you, and I put my hands on your breasts . . . hey, I love that, too."

Sounds like "Doctor Love" was doing more than talking dirty. How would he know he loves certain activities if he had not already engaged in them?

Where are such acts not regarded as sexual activity? Maybe on "Planet Lovetron," made famous by the late basketball quipster Darryl Dawkins. But on this particular planet, where most of us live, Bentley's words undeniably describe that "sexy thang." And Bentley must think the people of Alabama are abominably dense if he expects them to buy his story.

The "Love Doctor," with his aide
who has bodacious boobs and
a fine behind.
The real dunderhead, of course, is Bentley himself. Via national coverage at The New York Times, Washington Post, New York Daily News, and The Rachel Maddow Show, Bentley comes across as the creepy grandpa everyone hopes they'll never have to spend time with alone.

In a sign that karma really is a "bee-atch," former First Lady Dianne Bentley, who ended her 50-year marriage to the governor because of the Mason affair, played a major role in exposing the "lovebirds." That's from the conservative Alabama political site Yellowhammer News and a report by publisher Cliff Sims:

Yellowhammer was given exclusive access to the content of audio recordings captured by Dianne Bentley, Governor Bentley’s ex-wife, during which Governor Bentley makes sexual advances on and recalls sexual encounters with Rebekah Mason, his former communications director who has since become his most senior external advisor. Mrs. Mason’s husband, Jon, also serves in the Bentley administration as Director of Serve Alabama, the Governor’s Office of Faith-Based and Volunteer Service.

One of the recordings was captured while Governor and Mrs. Bentley were visiting their beach house.

Mrs. Bentley, who had suspected the affair, went for a walk on the beach, but left her cell phone behind recording the audio of what took place in her absence.

During that time period, Governor Bentley can be heard making a phone call to “Rebekah” that includes sexual references to their time together. The Governor also expressed a desire to “FaceTime” so they could see each other.

Maybe Mrs. Bentley has a future as a private investigator, a female Barnaby Jones. (Barnaby was famous for going into bars and asking bartenders for a cold glass of milk. That's the kind of wholesome guy Mrs. Bentley needs and deserves. Unfortunately, Buddy Ebsen, the great actor who played Barnaby [and Jed Clampett] has gone to that big TV studio in the sky.) Anyway, here's more from Yellowhammer:

A second recording appears to have been made at the Governor’s residence.

In the recordings, the Governor calls Mrs. Mason “baby” and discusses how much he enjoys standing behind her and touching her breasts. He also references a past encounter and says if they are going to do “that” again, they will need to start locking the door and also consider moving “Wanda’s” desk further away, presumably referencing executive assistant Wanda Kelly, whose Capitol office is just outside of the Governor’s.

References were also made to encounters that took place at Blount House, a 12,336-square-foot, Georgian-style home in Montgomery that serves as a second Governor’s Mansion. The property was donated to the state in 2008 by the family of the late businessman Wynton “Red” Blount. It was valued at $28 million at the time.

Perhaps "Dr. Love" Bentley deserves credit for something. Unlike other conservative politicos who have taken a "wide stance" with their marriage vows, Bentley at least did the "schwing thing" with a woman--and she's pretty good looking, at that.

Perhaps it's reassuring to some that lurking beneath that Montgomery Burns exterior was an inner Hugh Hefner all along.

One final note: This has not been widely reported, but the taping of Bentley's apology video included a number of outtakes. Here they are:

LS...while I have been trying to keep up with the Hubbard trial, this story, etc. I sometimes fail to see how they all link together. NOT trying to tell you how to run your blog, but would an article tying all this together be worthwhile?

Governor's Bentley's words are being taken out of context. Many old men talk to themselves. He had just recieved his lunch of fried chicken in an Outback take out box.

"He cherishes touching her breasts." Even when trying to sound classy he comes off phony, creepy, and awkward.

Good point, @9:59. I would like to write a post tying this all together, but I'm not sure how it ties together. I'm not sure anyone knows. For example, I don't understand why Bentley did not want Collier to provide info re: Hubbard case. Why did Bentley care? Why have Bob Riley, Rob Riley, Bill Baxley, and others not been charged with obstruction, which they clearly did, based on e-mail evidence? Why is Luther Strange prosecuting some crimes and ignoring others? I like your idea, and I will be working on it, but still struggling to wrap my head around all of this.

My dingo I'm laughing so hard at the caption The "Love Doctor," with his aide who has bodacious boobs and a fine behind. If only it wasn't accurate in Rebekah Mason's case!

9:59 AM I agree. Now Bentley is making national headlines embarrassing an already "square state with round people". The Gov comes off a bit like my own grandfather, who was a molester and sociopath.

9:59 again...thanks for the reply and the confirmation that I'm not the only one confused! I know there has to be a string somewhere tbat ties some of this together. Maybe just lay out the facts of what is/has happened and let us see if any thread appears. Again...not trying to write you blog...just something I would be interested in reading (and maybe others too).

As a big NBA, I appreciate the reference to "Planet Lovetron." R.I.P, Darryl Dawkins. There will never be another like you.

Has anyone noticed that Dianne Bentley is a fine-looking woman for her age. And she's smart as hell, too. You didn't appreciate what you had "Dr. Love," and now she's gone. I think that's a big-time sin, according to the Good Book you claim to know so well.

It is somehow refreshing to know the "Love Doctor" is a good old fashioned hetero horn dog.

The outtakes video almost made me wet myself.

This can be for your eyes only ,your choice. Assume;justice Dept. came to Auburn. Campus Crest got entangled. Laura Canary takes control.But the idiots in Auburn had panicked and got a bigger fish (McGregor).Bradley Arant had got involved because of Rollins.Politics took advantage of the situation, the idiots in Auburn presented.Problem is ,they did not take McGregor out.Civil suits are a bigger threat to some.Mike Hubbard will deliver every one in exchange for immunity from civil suits, which he can only recieve by not being included in the conspiracy the others will be charged in. Get rid of Mike's trial and he will not testify against the others.Crazy theory yes,But not to someone who has watched this unfold since 2006.

Stabler was called in to be the fixer. He's already calling Collier a liar. They're design is to frame Collier with financial mismanagement accusations and trash him in any way they can. Just watch where it goes. You'll see.

legalschnauzer said...

Interesting, @12:26. Still can't figure why Bentley/Mason want the Hubbard investigation to go away? Is that Riley influence? Why did Jessica Garrison, Luther Strange's "gal pal," act supportive of Mason in her hit piece against me at Marie Claire? Any clues?

The Justice Dept. has terminated all the FBI agents involved in the Bingo trial And Faega. The Attorney General in Alabama has terminated all their agents involved in the Bingo Trial. To calm the BEAST, the legislature tried to give it a 20 year monoply.It did not pass.It is possible some civil suits are filed under seal to exert pressure. You do not put Milton Mcgregor in chains and expect him to laugh about it. His civil suits will force the Justice Dept to get involved to cover their behind. Once that happens, the Riley machine will be destroyed.Jessica fears any legal action you bring without the Riley machine to protect her. You say Bentley/Mason when in reality, Bentley does what Mason tells him to do and Mason does what the people paying her want done.

Allow me to recount one of life's many lessions I learned 45 years ago at a young age.When sitting at the counter, in the San Diego bus station, and a beautiful heifer wearing short shorts sits beside you, and then tells your ugly ass, that she wants to take you up stairs and make passionate love;take her hand and compare the length of the index finger to the ring finger.Everything (and person) in life are not what they appear to be.
Bill Britt wants you to believe Mike Hubbard has spent all his money on lawyers.Mark White did not cost him a dime.The people paying Baxley,want the charges dropped.Everybody takes Mike for an idiot.He has this under control.

Anonymous said...

@legalschnauzer probably because Garrison and Mason are being compensated from the same "charitable organization" funding pool. Who's paying them? That's the story.

See, that's a big thing, isn't it? Garrison didn't have to drop that name in print... but she did. Now she's is discredited by doing it. Why did she bother in the first place? I have to think there's a third piece of the puzzle...

You have good a reason to dislike Fred Yancey,but the Yancey family is not your enemy. They can go thru doors that you can not enter. Keith Baker did not leave the Bingo Trial by force. During discovery,he learned that he had been tricked into investigating McGregor,by the land thieves in Auburn.He wanted no part of what was to follow. Mike Hubbard does not fear a trial in lee county.He only needs one juror to win.He also has a spare parachute. Keith Baker is one of Big Luther's agents assigned to the case. Some of the Yancey clan,Keith Baker and Todd Brown(Big Mac's son-in-law used to play touch football. You can look for, one of the above, to be the Feds star witness against Riley.

I am not Bob Sanders,therefore I will not put the hay down where the goats can get to it. You were raised a farm boy. You have seen how a billy goat can find his way to the hay loft.I will give you one floor tile to stand on. Contact Annelle Smith, who used to be a lee county commissioner. When she left the commissioners chambers,the last time,she did not pack her stuff. She did not want another minute with those good ole boys.

Old Bentley there made the Daily Koz, for passing legislation which prohibits working women and men getting raises, by banning hikes in min. wage any where in the state, all the while giving "his team" pay raises of up to 80%. sounds like the guy is just into all sorts of interesting stuff these days.

Sounds like the old guy really is loosing his marbles. Doesn't the old fool know that when people can't get paid a decent wage their children suffer. Of course it could be he likes to see people suffer, including children.

It is simply beyond imagination that a governor would want to ensure working people remain living in poverty. What is even more strange is that people wouldn't try to re-call him. Seattle has a min. wage of $15 per hr and no businesses are declaring bankruptcy there. On the other hand, British Columbia, Canada, has the lowest min. wage in Canada and also has the highest rate of child poverty in the country. Perhaps Bentley is trying for another record, first one, oldest governor with youngest mistress; second, highest poverty rate in America.

Bentley would appear to be a very weird old man. Perhaps his doctor should test him for dementia. well its just a suggestion, but sometimes people who do weird things are headed in that direction.

@12:50 looks like some of the most powerful people in Alabama are clawing, fist-fighting and hair-pulling behind the scenes to keep their lies and mistakes covered up. Adding coal to the fire, your blog has been a major element contributing to their exposure and you have obviously suffered incredibly for trying to expose it.

If Gov. Bentley's personal security guard, Stan Stabler, didn't know the governor was getting smooth with Rebekah Mason, and everybody else did–– why are the people of Alabama being taxed for anything at all? To protect and fund the hanky-panky that goes on at the highest levels? And now this guy is heading up all of Alabama's law enforcement? It's unbelievable that so many bags have been pulled over so many people's gullible heads there–– and for so many years...... very sad indeed.

Curiously I ask, WHO is paying Rebekah. I.e. WHO has been running the state of Alabama all this time? It's a very sad time for the good, honest people of Alabama.

e.a.f. said...

you can go from personal body guard to the Govenor to being the head of the State's law enforcement? Aren't there professional requirements for a job like that? Don't you have to have expierence in some more serious work to have a job like that? Not in Alabama. O.K. weird or what. In other parts of the western world you usually have to have several university degrees, been a police chief of a major city, etc and in Alabama just the body guard to an adulterer. O.K. I now see the major job requirement for the job. Just a little slow on the up take there. its Good Friday after all and we all have the day off here in British Columbia. Its a statutory holiday. Not bad for a bunch of not very religious types. You get paid for the day and don't have to work.

I recently learned that Stan Stabler's son, a new very young deputy with the Baldwin County Sheriffs Department, caused the death of a woman. Until I heard Stan Stabler's Bu--SH-- lies, i figured his son was an idiot and made an accidental mistake. Not anymore! The dead woman's family should sue the hell out of Jr Stabler. If he's anything like his Dad is, he knew exactly what he was doing!

Governor’s Emergency Relief Fund is where the true story leads

R Hammond said...

In my humble view, there is some Bentley/Riley/Hubbard connection...that goes to state property for sale or the Medicare program funding (maybe legit, maybe fraud). These three guys have some syndicate or group at risk. The affair is simply an accident by Bentley....allowed to fester and grow....becoming public knowledge.

I would also offer this observation...the Masons were building some kind of media-to-political gimmick where you could come to their 'company' and get religious-theme voters in the state to go in one direction. It's a team deal and both would do anything required to keep their machine functioning and growing. It won't surprise me if the Governor is still around at the end of 2016, with no impeachment, and he's quietly marrying his dream gal after some quick divorce with Mr Mason in Aruba.
