Our Facebook news teams is in the process of preparing a detailed prosecutorial memorandum on Alabama Governor Robert Bentley’s misuse of taxpayer and donor money to carry on a love affair with Rebekah Caldwell Mason, his senior political advisor. It is anticipated that the report will be ready for submission to Justice Department officials in Washington by the first week in November.

George L. Beck Jr. was sworn in as the United States Attorney for the Middle District of Alabama on July 6, 2011. He was nominated by President Obama on March 31,2011, and confirmed by the U.S. Senate on June 30, 2011. Prior to being appointed, George Beck served as Deputy Attorney General for the State of Alabama for eight years, and Judge Advocate General for the Corps of Alabama Army National Guard for over thirty years, retiring at the rank of Colonel. He joined a private law firm in January 2004 where he remained until he was confirmed as U.S. Attorney. Mr. Beck received his undergraduate degree from Auburn University and his law degree from the University of Alabama.

George L. Beck Jr. was sworn in as the United States Attorney for the Middle District of Alabama July 6, 2011 after nomination by President Obama March 31, 2011, and confirmation by the U.S. Senate June 30, 2011.

The report will ask the Department to disqualify Montgomery U.S. Attorney George Beck from any involvement in the criminal investigation because of his close personal relationship with David Byrne, the governor’s departing chief legal advisor. Byrne was the senior executive vice-president, general counsel, and corporate secretary of Colonial Bank when it collapsed in 2011 from a massive criminal fraud scheme. Byrne escaped prosecution in the Colonial case but resurfaced later as Bentley’s state-paid consigliere for all matters dealing with Rebekah and her husband Jonathan, the director of Serve Alabama.

The report chronicles and marshals the incidents of misuse of public funds, identifies the material witnesses to each incident, and lists the documents evidencing the various criminal acts in the scheme to defraud taxpayers and donors. The report also identifies those who are actively participating in the ongoing cover-up of the criminal activity.

Bentley’s conduct in office is nearly identical to that of former Detroit mayor Kame Kilpatrick. Like Bentley, the former mayor was caught in a cheating scandal that involved the misuse of taxpayer and donor monies to carry on an illicit love affair. Kilpatrick is serving 28 years in prison for his fraud, money laundering, conspiracy, and racketeering criminal conduct. We will insist that the Department of Justice treat the Bentley case with the same prosecutorial vigor and enthusiasm that it applied to Kilpatrick’s case.
