Beebe Wants Policy Clarified in Wake of Huckabee Exoneration

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Governor Beebe says the state's policy on the destruction of government hard drives needs to be clarified.  That was Beebe's response yesterday after the state's attorney general cleared the administration of former Governor Mike Huckabee of any wrongdoing in destroying such equipment.

Attorney General Dustin McDaniel said he could find no reason to pursue any action against Huckabee or his staff over the 91 destroyed hard drives.  McDaniel says no law authorized the practice but there is no law that would make the destruction illegal.

Huckabee said the hard drives were destroyed to prevent unauthorize access to medical records and Social Security numbers.
