"I am not seeking to justify or defend my actions of nine years ago"

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee December 1, 2009

Mike Huckabee kinda sorta admits he fucked up when he granted clemency to cop killer suspect Maurice Clemmens almost a decade ago:

I wish his file had never crossed my desk, but it did. The decision I made is one that I now wish were different, but I could only look backwards at his case, not forward. None of this is of any comfort to the families of these police officers nor should it be. Their loss is senseless. No words or deeds by anyone will bring them back to their loved ones. Our system is not perfect and neither are those responsible for administering it.

A lot more here.
