Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley refuses to resign after the explosive leak of a steamy audio recording featuring him and his female aide. has learned that the Alabama legislature is set to meet on Tuesday afternoon, and reports claim lawmakers could potentially seek to oust the 73-year-old governor over the scandal.

As reported, audio recordings surfaced last month of Bentley engaging in a raunchy phone conversation with one of his aides, Rebekah Mason.

Though both Bentley and Mason have denied that there was any physical component to their relationship, the leaked audio implies a steamy affair.

"Hey, I love that too, putting my hands under you," Bentley told Mason in one section of the clip. Bentley's wife Dianne filed for divorce in August 2015, citing an "irretrievable breakdown" of their 50-year marriage.


Meanwhile, Bentley has even turned to prayer, appearing Monday at Limestone Correctional Facility in Alabama and asking for forgiveness.

"I've asked God to forgive me because that's the most important thing," Bentley said. "I want back in his fellowship. And so I asked God to forgive me."
