Maurice Clemmons, currently sought in the execution-style murders of four police officers, would still have been in prison on a 108-year sentence except that Gov. Huckabee (R-AK) commuted his sentence. This was one of several controversial pardons by the former governor.
Huckabee's policies as governor were often more left than right. (He has sometimes been called a pro-life liberal.) I had previously discussed his foreign policy ideas which were based on inappropriate childhood analogies, something that is common on the left.
