Stem Cell Money For Huck?


Via Instapundit, I found this story from Riehl World:

Mitt Romney took a bit of a hit among Right to Lifers due to stock in Novo Nordisk held in a blind trust. Novo Nordisk is involved with embryonic stem cell research. It seems Huckabee received a total of $35,000 in honoraria from the same firm through 12 Stops, created for the distribution of one of his books. Some info here. But that amounts to only a small amount of almost $400,000 in compensation he’s said to have received while still Governor of Arkansas.

The word on Huckabee is that he likes his money. I’m not sure people realize just how much, given the poor preacher image and all. He appears to have made several times his salary as Governor from outside business interests.

Me: Wonder why this hasn’t made more of a splash.
