He doesn't like it! Hey Mikey! (Huckabee)
Source: Mother Jones


Mike Huckabee read the Mother Jones story on the destruction of the records from his time as governor of Arkansas. He didn't like it.

Speaking to US News and World Report yesterday, Huckabee slammed Mother Jones. "(Mother Jones) doesn't pretend to be a real news outlet, but a highly polarized opinion-driven vehicle for all things to the far left," he said. "You expect that wolves will eat meat."

Here's part of Huckabee's defense:

The absurd insinuation that my office "destroyed" state records or that records are "missing" is the same old political canard that was attempted years ago and failed then for the same reason it will fail nowit's factually challenged.


As we reported, these are not "absurd insinuations." What happened to Huckabee's gubernatorial records was documented in this memo from the Arkansas Department of Information Systems. It confirms that the hard drives containing the records were erased and then destroyed. Copies of the records were placed in the hands of former Huckabee staffer Brenda Turner, who is now the communications director for a Christian greeting card company. Turner has not said what she did with the backups. She refused to talk to us. Here's the relevant part of the 2007 document, which was addressed to the outgoing Gov. Huckabee:

1. Then it should be easy to prove Mother Jones is lying, Mike
Simply produce the hard drives, network drives and copies of your e-mails. If they haven't been destroyed or lost, you have them. Right? Easiest thing in the world to prove that this is a political canard.
