Questions About Mike Huckabee

Sean seems to think that Huckabee may be a viable candidate. I, too, thought so until I got some more information. It seems that Huckabee may have too many skeletons in the closet to be a viable candidate. Facts have not emerged because his poll ratings are small and he does not, yet, earn the attention of close scrutiny. Quin Hillyer, a senior editor at The American Spectator, has a good article that should raise concerns. According to Hillyer, “Huck is for Huck is for Huck. National media folks like David Brooks, dealing in surface appearances only, rave about what a nice guy Huckabee is, and a moral exemplar to boot. If they only did a little homework, they would discover a guy with a thin skin, a nasty vindictive streak, and a long history of imbroglios about questionable ethics. Once, Gov. Huckabee even had the gall to file suit against the state ethics commission. He lost.”
