That's It For This Republican

Mike Huckabee Granted Clemency To Maurice Clemmons, Man Wanted For Questioning In Parkland Ambush That Killed 4 Cops

"PARKLAND, Wash. (AP)— A convicted felon granted clemency nine years ago by former Arkansas Governor and 2008 presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, is wanted for questioning in the shooting deaths of four police officers in Washington state.
Maurice Clemmons, the man wanted for questioning, has been convicted of five felonies in Arkansas and has been charged with eight felonies in Washington state.
The Seattle Times spoke to the prosecuting attorney in Arkansas who opposed Huckabee's clemency for Clemmons:
"This is the day I've been dreading for a long time," Larry Jegley, prosecuting attorney for Arkansas' Pulaski County said Sunday night when informed that Clemmons was being sought in connection to the killings...
Clemmons had been in jail in Pierce County for the past several months on a pending charge of second-degree rape of a child."
