Huckabee Pardons Keith Richards

We don't often talk politics here at The Weight, but this story was too good to pass up. Presidential candidate and rock n' roller Mike Huckabee pardoned Rolling Stone Keef Richards for a 32-year old traffic violation before leaving office as the governor of Arkansas last year. What is it with these governors from Arkansas and their rock and or roll tendencies?

Huckabee reveals, "One of my last acts as governor was to issue a pardon for a traffic violation that he had in 1975 when he and (bandmate) Ronnie Wood were driving through Arkansas. He got pulled over for a reckless-driving charge."
