Huckstering

First, consider the source. The American Spectator. Yes, that American Spectator.

But, really, would it surprise you to find out that Mike Huckabee's presidential campaign had gotten touched by a possible violation of federal election finance laws, given his track record? The lead (and the campaign denies all involvement in the problem, if accurately reported):

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is poised to open an investigation into the endorsement of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee by the Homeschool Legal Defense Association Political Action Committee, after email traffic and other materials from the group were passed to the Commission by several rival campaigns.

The HSLDA PAC last week planned to endorse Huckabee, but all of the internal email correspondence and notification of the endorsement took place, not via the HSLDA PAC, which can legally endorse, but the 501c3 HSLDA nonprofit, which is barred from overt political activity, such as fundraising for a candidate or endorsing.
