Apparently both Huckabee's personal attorney and chief of staff leaned on then-State Police chief John Bailey, who refused to quash the investigation only to be fired seven months later by Huckabee personally. "I've lost confidence in your ability to do your job," Bailey says Huckabee told him. One reason Huckabee cited was "I couldn't get you to help me with my son when I had that problem," according to Bailey. "Without question, [Huckabee] was making a conscious attempt to keep the state police from investigating his son," says I. C. Smith, the former FBI chief in Little Rock,

who worked closely with Bailey and called him a "courageous" and "very solid" professional.

No hang-dog looks from Mike!

Doggone it!

We. Are. Going. To. Die. We must restore hope in the world. We must bring forth a new way of living that can sustain the world. Or else it is not just us who will die but everyone. What have we got to lose? Go forth and Fight!—Xan
