More Virginia bloggers take aim at Huckabee

Jim Riley at (Virginia Virtucon) coins an instant classic: “Mike Dukakabe.”

Meanwhile, Leslie Carbone takes note of Huckabee’s personal interest in the case:

As nimble as he is with rhetoric, surely Governor Huckabee realizes that there’s not much of a fig leaf in the letter he sent Mr. Dumond in prison:

Dear Wayne

“My desire is that you be released from prison. I feel that parole is the best way for your reintroduction to society to take place.” 

Even more interesting is what Byron York discovered about the case over at National Review Online (emphasis added):

On October 31 (1996), Huckabee met with the parole board. Not long after, the board voted to free Dumond, but on the condition he move to another state . . . But no state would take Dumond. He remained behind bars for two and a half more years, until the board voted to free him in Arkansas. He was released in October 1999 and returned home. The next year, Dumond left the state, moving to a small town near Kansas City, Mo. Within weeks of arriving, he sexually assaulted and murdered a 39-year-old woman at an apartment complex near his home. The day that happened, everyone knew that freeing Wayne Dumond had been a very, very bad idea.

Actually, Huckabee should have known “that freeing Wayne Dumond had been a very, very bad idea” a long time before that.  It’s not as if he didn’t have people telling him exactly that.
