I can see a lot of valid reasons for all of this. First, Huckabee can just be one of those Christians who really takes the forgiveness and mercy aspect of the religion to heart.

People with some contact to him get pardoned? Wow, whooda thunk it? You can’t pardon someone you’ve never heard of, and having some kind of personal contact method helps you hear of them.

This minister? It’s not vote buying. They obviously get along well together minister-to-minister. Williams knows how to talk to Huckabee to get across that someone has changed. Williams of course looks after his flock, so will bring people he thinks deserve clemency to Huckabee.

I believe Huckabee is an honest man, and all of this can be explained simply by him having bleeding-heart liberal tendencies.

“People with some contact to him get pardoned? Wow, whooda thunk it? You can’t pardon someone you’ve never heard of, and having some kind of personal contact method helps you hear of them.”

So, we’ve got Clinton-style pardons without the groping. Oh Joy.

“I believe Huckabee is an honest man, and all of this can be explained simply by him having bleeding-heart liberal tendencies.”

Which we need in the GOP nomination like a fish needs a bicycle.

At what point do we lose any deterrance to crime through punishment/jail? Hell, lets just pardon everybody from the get-go and close all the jails, if we're in the forgiveness business. Pfft!

And look at the RATE of his pardons for crying out loud. Even the most forgiving governor better be able to recognize that crime must be punished and punishment must be served.

Ex-employees, old school mates aside I suppose. Your logic leaves a lot to be desired. Why in the Sam Hill should we put up with this level of croney-ism from our elected officials? Here's my stand: I DON'T.

BLEEDING HEART LIBERAL TENDENCIES

Buddy, you can say that again. Count me OUT for voting in a soft on crime POTUS!

Crikey, this guy Huckabee is flat-out dangerous.
