REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE MIKE HUCKABEE FACES JAIL TIME FOR MOCKERY OF THE COURT

huckGRAYSON, Kentucky (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Standing beside Rowan County clerk Kim Davis today, Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee accused the courts of “making a law out of thin air and punishing people for not obeying something that is not even a law.”

Huckabee’s statement came just minutes after Davis was released from county jail.  She was imprisoned for contempt of court, refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

“If somebody needs to go to jail, I’m willing to go in [Kim Davis’] place,” Huckabee said.

Be careful what you wish for.

Huckabee now faces possible jail time for mocking the court system which he says is “criminalizing the Christian faith.”

There has been a precedent of jail time for mockery in the United States.  An Ohio man, William Bailey, was sentenced in 2012 to one month in jail for mockery of a young girl with cerebral palsy in a bus stop.
