David Standridge (R), a confidant of the governor, posted a scathing statement on Facebook in which he called for Bentley to resign. It says, in part: Governor Bentley has violated the trust placed in him by the people of this great state, myself included. ... By his own admission, his actions have been harmful to the people of this state.
