Ethics Panel Launches Investigation of Huckabee

FEBRUARY 2, 2007 - Posted at 2:32 p.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Arkansas Ethics Commission is investigating a complaint filed against former Governor Huckabee that claims the White House hopeful violated state law when he destroyed hard drives from his office.

In a letter dated January 30, the commission told Jim Parsons of Bella Vista that is investigating Parsons' complaint over the crushing of Huckabee's hard drives.

Parsons filed a complaint against Huckabee Monday and has also complained to Pulaski County prosecutors, claiming the hard drives' destruction violated the state's Freedom of Information Act.

Huckabee, a Republican who filed paperwork Monday to form a presidential exploratory committee, has defined the destruction of the drives and said it was done to protect sensitive information such as employees' Social Security numbers and credit card information.

Ethics Commission Director Graham Sloan said in the letter that one of the first steps in the investigation will be determining if Parsons' complaint would fall under the panel's jurisdiction.
