On loan

Posted By on Fri, Jan 26, 2007 at 6:00 AM

Not too surprisingly, former Gov. Mike Huckabee's bro-in-law Jim Harris has lost his job at the state's Department of Emergency Management. Somebody else will have to fight "agricultural terrorism" for $72,000 a year. But I wish some more attention could be given to how Harris, who was slid over to this job when his bro-in-law left the governor's office, was carried on the Arkansas Development Finance Authority payroll. How long did this practice extend into the governor's tenure? Were there other employees of his office carried on other payrolls, so as to make the Huckabee machine look lean though it was actually larded with people such as this? That's the scam he operated on his Washington office for years, where Jason Brady did his political bidding and precious little of solid benefit to the state based on the public record.
