Just the "Southern Way"?

That's how Mike Huckabee's pro bono lawyer described the culture of gift-giving to the former Arkansas governor in this story from Politico.

Apparently, many of the donors found themselves named to a variety of posts by their donee, Mike Huckabee. But what jumps out even more is this statistic:

In one year, the value of the gifts given to Huckabee amounted to more than $112,000 — nearly double his $67,000 state salary.

Wow. Everyone should have so many people who just want to give them things out of disinterested friendship.
