Mike Huckabee's clemencies

Posted By on Wed, Feb 6, 2008 at 7:14 AM

Mike Huckabee's justice for favored inmates is the gift that keeps on giving to political opponents, if not to the public's safety.

Eugene Fields, the wealthy Van Buren man whose help from Huckabee to be freed from prison happened to coincide with Republican Party contributions has been arrested for drunk driving again (as a Blog reader mentioned in comments the other day, by the way).He pleaded guilty Super Tuesday.

The article doesn't explain how a man who went to prison for fourth offense DWI pleaded guilty to second-offense DWI.

UPDATE: A former prosecutor advises me that past DWI convictions drop off the record for purposes of enhancement after a certain period of time -- three years when he was a prosecutor.
