Swimming pools; movie stars

Posted By on Mon, Sep 10, 2007 at 3:51 PM

Mike Huckabee is having his Beverly Hills fund-raiser Wednesday at the home of real estate developer Fred Wehba, his campaign has announced. Ought to be quite a house. From the SF Chronicle in 2004

The historic Max Whittier estate, known in the '70s as the Beverly Hills home of Saudi Sheikh Mohammed al Fassi, has been divided and sold as two parcels.

Fred Wehba, a founder of the privately owned, commercial real estate investment company BentleyForbes, and his wife, Suzi, purchased a 2-acre parcel for $6.6 million. They plan to build a 14,000-square-foot house plus 7, 000 square feet of underground parking, a pool and a tennis court.

Wehba is a born-again Texan who helped found an evangelical church in Beverly Hills and who earlier in the year was thought to be lining up behind Rudy Giuliani.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
