Snitch of the Week: 12/2 - 12/8 (Mike Huckabee - Huffington Post)

(Fuck laws!)

If I had the time, I'd breakdown a different Republican candidate a week. But every week more and more shit leaks out that makes drinking my way out of an ocean seem more plausible.

The bullshit that we call our media was quick to jump on Huckabee a kind of innocent "Aww gee shucks" kind of candidate until it started becoming more and more apparent that Huckabee is even more of a naively ignorant Christian imperialist than Bush.

All we need is another president who doesn't understand the importance of recognizing evolution.

I can't wait until we are all controlled remotely by Chinese scientists because half the country still questions the existence of naturally observable phenomenon.

The particular instance of insanity that should have ended his campaign in a sane world was his effort to have a serial rapist released on parole, who then went on to rape and kill again.

  • Little Rock, Ark -- As governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee aggressively pushed for the early release of a convicted rapist despite being warned by numerous women that the convict had sexually assaulted them or their family members, and would likely strike again. The convict went on to rape and murder at least one other woman.

    Confidential Arkansas state government records, including letters from these women, obtained by the Huffington Post and revealed publicly for the first time, directly contradict the version of events now being put forward by Huckabee.

You know, because Republicans are so tough on crime...

  • While on the campaign trail, Huckabee has claimed that he supported the 1999 release of Wayne Dumond because, at the time, he had no good reason to believe that the man represented a further threat to the public. Thanks to Huckabee's intervention, conducted in concert with a right-wing tabloid campaign on Dumond's behalf, Dumond was let out of prison 25 years before his sentence would have ended.

    "There's nothing any of us could ever do," Huckabee said Sunday on CNN when asked to reflect on the horrific outcome caused by the prisoner's release. "None of us could've predicted what [Dumond] could've done when he got out."

My nigga Jerome Jenkins from the Vandaveer projects is a good dude too. Maybe he should be let out 25 years early?
No one can predict anything, that's why you serve out your sentence.
Of course Huckabee was lying, because there were clear attempts made by victims, asking for DuMond to not be released.

It's really sad Republicans can't present a more respectable set of candidates. This "Us V. Them" dichotomy is only worsened when people have to chose a candidate out of the Mike Huckabee's of the world.

For pointing out the documents that link Huckabee to this crime, the Huffington Post is the Snitch of the Week.
