Huckabee's son arrested with gun in carry-on luggage
From the ArkDemocratGazette:
David Huckabee, who was licensed to carry a concealed weapon, said when he was arrested at 6 a.m. Thursday at Little Rock National Airport, Adams Field, that he had forgotten about the .40-caliber Glock. According to an arrest report, police at an X-ray machine could see the gun. It was loaded with eight rounds in a clip - none inthe guns chamber - and was accompanied by a nine-round clip.

snip (background):
Shortly before his 18th birthday in 1998, David Huckabee was one of two teens fired from a Boy Scout camp after a stray dog was killed. Scout officials would not say how the dog was killed but that only camp staff members witnessed the dogs death. Police never investigated the incident because no one filed a formal complaint.

This dog-killing was news here at the time. Local opinion/concensus was that he had shot the dog. :(
Now, here is his mugshot (brace yourself):


And leaving the jail:

"Duh, I dunno."

Here's the coverage from the local TV station:

Huckabee to America: Exercise More, Eat Less
Americans need to stop an epidemic of obesity or they face the prospect of having a generation of young people who will live shorter lives than their parents and grandparents, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said in Des Moines Saturday.

Huckabee has made healthy living a cornerstone of his candidacy, although his remarks Saturday were billed as non-political. He was diagnosed with Type II diabetes in 2003 when he weighed about 300 pounds after decades of sedentary living and poor eating habits. He responded by losing 110 pounds and beginning regular exercise that has led him to complete four marathons.

I'm at a loss for words....
