Impoverished Mike Huckabee Pimping Himself Out For Money
It appears the always modest Huckabee family finances have gotten so lean that "the guy you work with, not the guy who laid you off" has turned to debasing forms of employment while he pursues his doomed bid for the presidency.
Yes, he is giving speeches ... for money. This weekend, instead of campaigning he will be addressing a group of "young professionals" in the Cayman Islands. Yesterday he defended the move, telling reporters "I have to make a living ... There will be a few other times when I go out and make sure I can pay my mortgage payment like everybody else has to."
More troubling, though, is this ad spotted in American Profile this weekend:
