Huckabee's Son Arrested
Reuters via Raw Story has the latest:
David Huckabee, a son of former Arkansas governor and Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, was arrested on Thursday after trying to board an airliner with a loaded pistol, police said.
Huckabee, 26, was jailed after an X-ray of his carry-on bag revealed the weapon, identified in a police report as a Glock .40-caliber semi-automatic pistol containing eight live rounds of ammunition.
Once again, the law of karma is right on time.
The Senate Security Guards unanimously testified that Phillip's stunned reaction to the screening that revealed the gun and ammunition, as well as the video recording of his reaction and his totally cooperative responses and demeanor, convinced them that he was 100% truthful when he told them that he didn't realize he had the gun and ammunition, and that the mistake was completely inadvertent and unintentional.
IMHO, Phillip's statement through his attorney that he prefers not to make any public statement on the conclusion is just further evidence of his integrity -- neither he nor Jim Webb will ever use the correct decision by the prosecuting attorney for any political advantage, and so far as they (and all other reasonable and thoughtful people) are concerned this unfortunate incident is now a closed matter. Not even the wingnuts can find anything more to talk about; pundit speculation to the contrary, Phillip's service to Jim Webb, Virginia and the U.S. will continue unabated.
