Mike Huckabee's Long Long Honeymoon

Arkansas Governor and Southern Baptist, Mike Huckabee, has been touted as a candidate for the 2008 Republican nomination. According to the Times Record, ole Huckabee has found a nifty way to get around laws preventing public officials from receiving personal gifts worth more than $100. State law allows public officials to receive wedding gifts. Celebrating his 32nd wedding anniversary this year, Mike Huckabee is still accepting wedding gifts.
“Wedding” registries in the names of Gov. Mike Huckabee and his wife, Janet, have been set up at two department store chains in advance of the Huckabees’ move out of the Governor’s Mansion into a private home.

The term-limited governor leaves office in January, and friends of Janet Huckabee created the registries at Dillard’s and Target stores to help facilitate their transition to private life, Huckabee spokeswoman Alice Stewart said Friday. The Huckabees purchased a 7,000-square-foot home in North Little Rock this year. “Some ladies who are friends of Janet’s are giving her a housewarming party,” Stewart said.
