New AG: Somebody Else Would Lead Bentley Probe

Newly appointed Alabama attorney general Steve Marshall says he'll meet with staff Tuesday about the possible investigation involving Gov. Bentley.  Impeachment proceedings against Bentley were put on hold after Marshall's predecessor  --  Sen. Luther Strange -- asked lawmakers to stand down, citing "related work" by the attorney general's office.  Strange never publicly explained the request.   Marshall says if Bentley is the target of an investigation, he will recuse himself, and someone else will lead the probe.  "It's my obligation to recuse, and I will," Marshall said Monday.  Marshall says  public corruption cases will continue to be a priority for the state attorney general's office.
