Yep Thats him
Globalist stooges are not in the habit of taking responsibility for their actions.
What a surprise. /sar.
Why did he get 95 years for a robbery?
If the cop-killer turns out to be one of Huckabee’s parolees, he’s presidential dead meat. And I think he knows it.
No Republican could argue that the Willie Horton issue was fair to attack Dukakis with and yet, for Huckabee, it’s somehow different. That’s not going to fly.
I never did trust or like the Huckster who left his ministry for the “higher calling” of politics.
I will admit that I thought he seemed like a nice guy, but someone who uses his power to let dangerous criminals back out on the street is irresponsible. This is not the first time that someone he released murdered someone. I will not respect him unless he admits that he made some terrible mistakes. He also needs to be asking for forgiveness and make a very convincing case that he would not meddle in this type of thing again ever. That would be a start.
FYI-—This is not exactly on point but I think its safe to say Sarah doesnt have a Huck problem.
House Bill 69 now makes it mandatory for the governor and the Board of Parole to work together to ensure any decision on clemency is based on a thorough review of the case, and made in deference to victims and their families.
In a perfect world, this bill wouldnt be necessary, said Governor Palin. Unfortunately, we all know why such legislation has come through with unanimous support and why I sign this bill without hesitation.
In his final hours in office, Governor Murkowski granted an executive pardon to a company convicted of criminally negligent homicide. Whitewater Engineering Corporation pleaded no contest in 2001 to the charge in connection with the 1999 death of one of its employees. The pardon was granted on November 30, 2006. No one from the Murkowski administration notified the victims family of the request for clemency or that the pardon was granted.
HB 69 not only ensures that victims of crimes are notified of the governors intent to grant clemency but also allows them to become part of the process.
Huckabug believes that he can spin this away with a few words.
If I have to work myself to an earlier grave, I will do everything I can to bring down any presidential run this RINO my contemplate.
Great site, I used to have that site saved but I deleted it and focused my hatred on 0 after the election. I had forgotten about the Glen Green case, that was horrilble beyond belief.
I'm not questioning you, but I am curious about the specific approval process in this instance.
In my state, OH (and most of the other states in which I'm familiar), the governor's capacity for granting clemency (or a pardon) is not absolute. They may only do so after an application has been made (not by the governor) to the parole board (or some other designated review committee). After that approval is granted, it then comes to the governor's desk for approval or denial.
It sounds as if it works backwards in AR - a state in which I have no familiarity. Is that correct?
You and me both.
I think he would have been better off shutting his pie hole, but at least he could have extended condolences to the families of the police officers and left it at that. If I was a family member I would have been happier if he just kept his mouth shut on this issue. I think he really put his foot in his mouth and I think his only slim Presidential hope is now a 2016 run as a Democrat. His positions are much better suited for the democrat party anyway. He could say that he is seeking to return that Democrat party back to the party of JFK. He is more liberal than JFK, but that’s okay for the Democrats.
for granting clemency (commutation or a pardon)
Maurice Clemmons, the 37-year-old Tacoma man being sought for questioning in the killing this morning of four Lakewood police officers, has a long criminal record punctuated by violence, erratic behavior and concerns about his mental health.
Nine years ago, then-Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee granted clemency to Clemmons, commuting his lengthy prison sentence over the protests of prosecutors.
