Snowflake Huckabee tries to sue critic into silence with outrageous legal action

https://www.sun-sentinel.com/opinion/commentary/fl-op-com-mike-huckabee-launches-legal-assault-20191206-uecvnl4wmvagth5q5yztyc5iii-story.html?outputType=amp&__twitter_impression=true

"Mike Huckabee ran for president not once but twice and got his butt kicked both times. But he must have developed a thick skin along the way, right? Wrong.

The former Republican governor of Arkansas skillfully packaged his corn pone brand of conservatism into a lucrative second career at Fox News and the Christian-themed Trinity Broadcasting Network. That makes him part of Big Media, so you figure he’s obviously a strong defender of the First Amendment, right? Wrong again.
.....

He spent some of his Fox dough to build a $7 million beachfront house on the Gulf of Mexico near Destin in the Panhandle at a place called Blue Mountain Beach in Walton County. The three-story home is near Ground Zero of an epic legal fight that threatens the Florida tradition of public beach access.
Huckabee’s other favorite hangout is Twitter, where he’s known for awful puns and a steady barrage of criticism against Democrats, such as a racist tweet that went viral last year. It depicted Latino men flashing gang hand signals as Nancy Pelosi’s “campaign committee for the take-back of the House."

Ol’ Huck can dish it out, but he can’t take it.

When a persistent critic, a lawyer on the public side of the beach access battle, tweeted back with sarcasm and humor, Huckabee tried to silence him by filing a formal complaint with the Florida Bar. The complaint should be tossed out as a sham and an abuse of the system of disciplining lawyers.".....(more)

(This seems to be backfiring, since the attorney's small Twitter following of about 400 grew to >70k in one day!)

2. That account had 400 followers before, now it has over 70,000.

Same thing happened with Devin Nunes's mom/cow. These SLAPP suits only serve to make the accounts far more popular.

3. Remember the days when Republicans couldn't stop whining about the outrage of frivolous lawsuits?

Seems like it was only about 3 years ago.
