    Little Rock, Ark -- As governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee aggressively pushed for the early release of a convicted rapist despite being warned by numerous women that the convict had sexually assaulted them or their family members, and would likely strike again. The convict went on to rape and murder at least one other woman.

    Confidential Arkansas state government records, including letters from these women, obtained by the Huffington Post and revealed publicly for the first time, directly contradict the version of events now being put forward by Huckabee.

    Here is a post on the official website from a supporter who lived in AR back when Wayne Dumond was paroled. Here is his take on the issue:

    I don't understand these post you keep placing about Huck on the Dumond case. The OP states that Mike "pushed" for the man's release and then you give a link that is suppose to reveal "secret never before released" documents that I guess is suppose to back the OP up.

    I followed the links and all I came up with is letters sent to Huck by rape victums.

    Do you know of ANY ACTUAL proofs that Huck desperately wanted the man released? If so I would like to see them.

    Better yet, let's say Huck did believe the man was innocent and it was his fault the man was released and raped and murdered again. Let's forgive our brother in Christ for this terrrible SOLE MISTAKE on one inmate and deal with the actual TOTAL RECORD on crime accross the board. I still haven't found anything that proves him "soft on crime".

    God Bless! :thumbs:

    Would you being saying this if we were talking about, say, Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama or John Edwards instead of Mike Huckabee?

    The fact is Huckabee executed 19 inmates in his terms. So much for his soft in crime.

    Taking into account the two people(a mother and unborn child) that Dumond murdered after Huckabee got him released that makes a net of 17.

    Congratulations. :rolleyes:

    I doubt that will impress the family and friends of Carol Sue Shields and her unborn child.

    Amen to that!! Others are just willing to sell their birthright just like Esau for the sake of temporal bread.

    ==I think we need a more reliable source than the Huffington Post. I have caught the folks at Huffington making some interesting historical errors in recent weeks. Also the folks at the Huffington Post tend to lean left. Therefore I would need to know all sides of the story and read the actual documents (etc). I would also wish to talk to everyone involved. Wednesday night a gentleman from Huffington was on POTUS 08 (XM Radio) talking about this. His main source seemed to be a he said, she said source (not very good).

    Beyond all of that, I seriously doubt Huckabee took the side of a rapist. If he really did push for this mans release, I am sure it was not for fun or because he is heartless. I am sure he had a legal reason for it. I don't know what that was or is, but I am aware that Huckabee said he made a mistake.

    ==Since Governors are human, ie..mortal, they make mistakes. The nature of their job means that some mistakes they make will have very negative results. Huckabee is not the first or last governor to make such a tragic mistake. And, btw, I don't believe he is the only candidate in this race who has made this mistake.

    The issues in this election are too high to be playing gotcha politics and acting as if any of these candidates are perfect people who never make mistakes (big or small). In fact, I think the issues in this race are so important that the American people need to be carefully focused on those issues and not distracted by this kind of politics. If we wish to give people reasons not to vote for Huckabee we can find those reasons in his continued support for big government. Let's focus on the issues and not the past.

    RON PAUL FOR PRESIDENT IN 2008!!

    '


    The difference is they support legalized murder of the innocent...

    They openly support Abortion rights...

    They are just as guilty of murder as the abortion doctors.

    They have no right to serve American people when they don't care about life...

    If you want to support pro-choice candidates, you are guilty of innocent blood also, and will stand in judgment for it one day...


    That is the difference....

    Huckabee is the only conservative, and the American people are beginning to see this...

    Rudy is a liberal democrat undercover...
    Romney is a conservative wannabe...

    Huckabee is the only one that is appropriate to serve the people...
    He loves God, and is not ashamed to show it...

    If you don't like what I am saying, so be it...
    That is your right...

    A portion of a column in today's Arkansas Democrat-Gazette:

    DuMond issue strikes

    In time for Iowa

    By Meredith Oakley
    Friday, December 7, 2007

    LITTLE ROCK — It didn’t take second sight or even inside information to see this one coming down the pike, but the timing did take me by surprise.
    It was only last Saturday night, while my uncle and I were enjoying Mexican food and a leisurely conversation, that the topic of Mike Huckabee came up. Of course, I mentioned Wayne DuMond.

    “Watch for the name,” I told him, “because he is to Mike Huckabee what Willie Horton was to Michael Dukakis.”...

    We don’t know all the particulars, because Huckabee’s meeting with the parole board was conducted behind closed doors in apparent violation of the state’s Freedom of Information Act, but the evidence (not to mention the statements of others who participated in that meeting) points to a sympathetic governor who thought it would be an injustice to keep DuMond behind bars.

    Of course, Huckabee denies this, but he would, wouldn’t he? Before his death from cancer, DuMond had proved to be the worst sort of recidivist, the kind whose bent for violence escalates.

    About DuMond’s fight for freedom, Huckabee commented earlier this week that “the tragedy [is] that this went through several years and many different people, and all of us failed.”

    That may be a tragedy, but it isn’t the tragedy, as the scorecard of DuMond’s victims, whether living or dead, attests.

    Well, Martin, there are none as my post above yours points out:

    "We don’t know all the particulars, because Huckabee’s meeting with the parole board was conducted behind closed doors in apparent violation of the state’s Freedom of Information Act".

    This issue will not go away as long as Huckabee is in the race. It is Huckabee's "Willie Horton" case. The national media is just now catching wind of it.

    Thank you.. Ok, Ken, are you willing to forgive your brother in Christ?
    Now that he has asked forgiveness.
    If not, you cannot be forgiven...

    If so, then you have no right to keep throwing it up...
    He has said he regrets it...

    IF you forgive him, then keep slandering your brother in Christ, you will answer for it on Judgement day... and It will not be pretty.

    Slander is the same as murder...
    And you are slandering your brother....
