TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) – A former Alabama governor who resigned amid a sex scandal has opened a new dermatology office.

The Tuscaloosa News reports former Gov. Robert Bentley’s new Rice Mine Road location of his Dermatology Care of Alabama business opened Friday in Tuscaloosa. He previously practiced at an office on Veterans Memorial Parkway, next to Starbucks.

Bentley is a longtime dermatologist who entered politics.

He resigned from office in 2017 as part of a deal in which he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor campaign-finance violations, agreed to never hold public office, and had to forfeit about $36,000 from his campaign account.

Bentley was accused of having an extramarital affair with a key staffer and using public resources to cover it up.
