JISHOU, HUNAN — It seems potential presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, who was governor of Arkansas for 12 years, had all the hard drives in his office wiped clean of data and then physically destroyed.

Supposedly, backups of the data are with one of his associates, but their whereabouts are unknown.

Additionally, Huckabee, a former minister for 12 years, has also destroyed records of his ministry and blocked access to videos of his sermons.

No, I ask you, if someone is trying so hard to cover his tracks, does it suggest he’s feeling guilty — or at least nervous — about something? And he wants to be president someday.

I guess he’s a graduate of the Richard M. Nixon School of Political Transparency. If you don’t know what I mean, Google “nixon tapes” sometime.
