The luv guv

Today, Alabama has a new female governor. The man who was elected fell off the fidelity wagon. He might have survived the affair, but he did a lot of things he shouldn't have done trying to cover the whole thing up.

While still married to his wife of many years, he'd given her his state iPad. He didn't realize that the iPad was on the same account as his state iPhone. When he began the affair with one of his young (married) female aids, he began sending his new amore texts. Each time he sent or received a text to or from his new girlfriend, his wife got a copy on her iPad. Things went downhill from there. 

He pleaded guilty to some misdemeanor charges in a deal where the state dropped felony charges in return for his resignation. 

It's a sad day for our state. I didn't vote for the man and I hope his replacement will get the state back on track and do what's right for the people who live here.

  1. He should have resigned not for cheating, but for just being so stupid!

  2. Sadly I doubt he has learned much from this. Power corrupts, and fron what I have read he certainly tried to use his to make this go away. I hope your new Governor is excellent.

  3. Amazing the older folk (and a few younger) who get trapped by technology because they think they are cool. I agree with joeh.
    I had a stump like that once and slowly worried it down. That is a neat shot! (It reminds me of a lot of work)

  4. People in high positions know they have to be careful. I am always amazed when they are so foolish.

  5. Ah, the wonders of modern technology. And as Joeh says, the stupidity of some people...

  6. He got caught in his own web of deception. Not very smart on both counts.
    Sometimes I feel like that stump. I'm starting to disintegrate little by little. lol.
    Nice little flower.

  7. I think our complicated technology has laid bare many indiscretions. But even without this I was not a fan of your former governor. Take care. By the way, I made a reference to you on my blog this morning.

  12. I'm sorry for your State and all the hard working folks who depended on leaders that would actually do that...lead. Two thoughts came to mind.."The bigger they are the harder they fall" and "There's no cure for stupid".
