HUCKABUCKS: More thoughts on Huckabee's stem-cell dollars, and other financial issues, from Bob Krumm. "In addition to the payments from Novo Nordisk, Mike Huckabee took a third of a million , much of it from organizations with governmental interests, even while he was Governor of Arkansas. . . . Taking payments from companies with businesses effected by pending legislation apparently doesn’t violate any ethical rules in Arkansas. Nor does sitting on a corporate board while governor. This is after all a state that has produced another former governor who infamously played close to the line of the law. But it certainly isn’t right."
UPDATE: Much more on Huckabee's finances here.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Jonah Goldberg: "Wonder why this hasn't made more of a splash." A cynic might suggest that it's because the mainstream media folks want Huckabee to get the nomination, because he'll be easy for the Democrats to beat.
MORE: Maybe you don't have to be that much of a cynic . . . . Related thoughts here.
