Googling Huck

Posted By on Thu, Nov 22, 2007 at 6:31 AM

Mother Jones examines Mike Huckabee's fiscal record, plus remarks on Iran and gay people. Washington Post notes step-up in criticism as he gains ground.

(P.S. -- I don't have a clue what Huckabee's spokesman is talking about in saying a member of the media filed ethics complaints against Huckabee and then the same "media" dismissed them. I did no such a thing. However, I have on occasion sided with Huckabee on ethics complaints filed by others. A good example is the infamous destruction of hard drives. I think he destroyed information that arguably didn't qualify for a working papers exception under the FOI. Most of all, I think the action reflected his obsession with secrecy and presented the appearance, if not fact, of a man with things to hide. But I have said from the beginning I didn't see the basis for an ethics complaint on the action. And I'm doubtful about the merits of the pending lawsuit by Jim Parsons as well.  You can quote me, Mike.)

    The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has denied a new permit for the C&H Hog Farms' concentrated animal feeding operation near Mount Judea (Newton County). This is a big and somewhat surprising victory for critics who have viewed C&H's large-scale pig farm and the pig waste it generates as an existential threat to the Buffalo National River.
