Does anyone remember when Michael Dukakis got nailed for Massachusetts' weekend-furloughs-for-prisoners programs
? What else can top that but outright clemency? Emperor Misha
posts a YouTube video that slams Mike Huckabee on this issue.
The video is hosted by LittleRockRepublican, whose profile
Unlike Mike Huckabee, I haven't let over 1,000 criminals out of prison. Also (unlike Huckabee) I haven't let 12 murders free.
YouTuber victimsvoice hosts a video abut the Wayne DuMond clemency - read about him in his Wikipedia entry. He was paroled in 1999; in 2001 a woman in Missouri was murdered, DuMond was charged, and he was convicted in 2003. DuMond died in his jail cell in 2005; he had been suffering from cancer in his vocal cords.
Note that both Arkansas and Missouri have primaries on February 5. Will political ads be mentioning DuMond in either of those states?
