Why not to vote for Mike Huckabee

Huckabee’s book deal after Jonesboro tragedy still rankles:

It seems that Mr. Huckabee cashed in on the Jonesboro tragedy while he was governor of Arkansas.

Indeed, within days a publisher agreed to pay $25,000 to an Arkansas writer to produce a book on youth violence.

Victims’ families were outraged. They called the payment blood money and said the author was cashing in on their pain. They demanded that the money go to the school, victims’ relatives or scholarships for the wounded, not to the writer’s personal bank account. He refused.

That the author was Mike Huckabee, Arkansas’ governor at the time, made their resentment all the stronger.

Ric Flair and Chuck Norris be damned.
