'Wedding' Registries Set Up for Huckabee as He Leaves Office

NOVEMBER 13, 2006 - Posted at 7:46 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - A wedding registry for Governor Huckabee and his wife Janet? Well, they HAVE been married for decades, but friends of the first lady have set up ``wedding'' registries at two retail chains to give gifts to the Huckabees as they prepare to leave the Governor's Mansion.

The governor leaves office in January after serving ten years. The Huckabees bought a seven-thousand-square-foot home in North Little Rock this year. Huckabee spokeswoman Alice Stewart said friends of the first lady are giving her a housewarming party.

Stewart said Mrs. Huckabee's friends created the registries at Dillard's and Target stores to help ease the transition to private life for the couple.

She declined to say if the governor was sure that accepting gifts would be legal or whether he planned to report any valuable gifts they receive. Arkansas law prohibits public servants from accepting any gift worth more than a hundred dollars, unless the gift is conferred on account of a bona fide personal, professional or business relationship.
