Huckabee (R), leads in polls as he runs from scandals almost daily

How many gifts did Huckabee accept as Governor?

Looks like more scandal regarding the huckster is coming forth daily. He likes gifts. Lots of gifts. When he was Governor he took everything every offered from 50% discounts at Wendy's to free dry cleaning, to thousands of dollars in clothing ($23,000 from one person alone whom later was assigned a position as stadium commissioner by Huckabee), free dental care, jewelry, diamonds, vacations, airfare, cash etc.

When he and his wife moved out of the Governor's home they (now don't laugh), but they registered at Dillards and Target under the wedding registry to help them with their home transition. read more

Huckabee reported over $112,000 in gifts one year alone, and then sued to allow him to receive even more gifts, and to stop the state ethics commission from investigating him.

During his tenure, Huckabee accepted 314 gifts valued overall at more than $150,000, according to documents filed with the Arkansas secretary of state's office. (He accepted 187 gifts in his first three years as governor but was not required to report their value.) more on Huckabee at AP

Randy Minton of Arkansas is going to Iowa to campaign against Huckabee whom he apparently thinks is dishonest. I'm sure we'll hear more about this as time goes on.

..and let's not forget the outrageous details of the rapist he took part in releasing, lied about it, and the man (whom died in prison) had killed and raped again after his release. Huckabee has spun this story repeatedly but the facts are against him on this one. Huffington Post did a detailed investigation into this case so much so that the Huckster shot back with an attack at them. The facts simply show he's lying about the rapist released because of the right's loathing of Bill Clinton. Huckabee seems to have a pattern of lying, like his comments about quarantining AIDS patients. Aids Story
