MONTGOMERY, Ala. -  A Republican Alabama lawmaker says he plans to start the impeachment process against Governor Robert Bentley.

This comes after the announcement Wednesday, that one of his top political aide's is resigning.

Rebekah Caldwell Mason said in a statement Wednesday that she is resigning as Bentley's senior policy analyst. The decision comes a week after Bentley apologized for making inappropriate remarks to her.

Rep. Ed Henry says, he plans to introduce a bill to impeach the Governor, because he believes Bentley has lost the confidence of lawmakers and voters.

He understands a motion to impeach Bentley would be an uphill battle, because a majority of House members would have to vote to begin the process.

The Alabama House speaker refused to comment on the impeachment proceedings.
