Isn’t this the way of it? Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley faces scandal after sexually explicit recordings of him talking to an aide about their relationship surfaced … and of course the female aide is the one giving up her job:
Rebekah Caldwell Mason announced her resignation in a statement sent by the governor's office, saying she would no longer serve as Bentley's senior political adviser and would no longer be paid by his campaign fund or work for a nonprofit organization formed to promote the his agenda.
Bentley does face pressure to resign, as well as some impeachment talk. But he’s hanging on:
“I have no intentions of resigning,” said Mr. Bentley, a Republican in his second term. “My intentions are to try to make this state better. My intentions are to try to work through all the difficulties that we’re going through.”
