Huckabee Helped Free Confessed Murderer James Maxwell Because He Became a Christian [VIDEO]

Last night on NBC Nightly News there was a brief investigative report looking into Mike Huckabee's proclivity to intervene on behalf of rapists and killers when he was governor of Arkansas. Until now I had only heard of the case of Wayne Dumond, who infamously raped and murdered again after Huckabee lobbied for his release. This report begins by looking at another case, which involves a man who once worked on Huckabee's property. Turns out Huckabee granted clemency two times more than the three previous Arkansas governors combined, which wouldn't be that big a deal to me if it weren't for the fact that according to this report his main motivation for almost all of his clemency granting was religion. That's right, the majority of these inmates claimed to have found religion and were backed by ministers. This is a yet another example of Huckabee's incompetence and raises serious questions about his judgment if not his sanity. Check out the video to your right for more.
