AL Democrats 'not rejoicing' in Bentley, Collier spat

MONTGOMERY, AL (WAFF) - Alabama Representative Craig Ford, a Democrat from Gadsden and the Minority Leader in the Alabama House, issued the following statement regarding Wednesday's statements and allegations between former ALEA Secretary Spencer Collier and Governor Robert Bentley.

Bentley terminated Collier's employment on Tuesday, citing an investigation which revealed "a misuse of funds." Collier fired back on Wednesday, alleging evidence that proved an affair between Bentley and a top aide.

Rep. Ford's statement is as follows:

When the Republicans took over the state government, they promised they were going to be the party of ethics; that they would lead us like Moses to the Promised Land. They made promises that they simply have not kept, and I hope the people of Alabama will remember that.
