It looks like a local Arkansas political operative is taking matters into his own hands. Dumond, Huckabee and a victim’s mother are now viral in a hard-hitting political ad. The closing line is powerful: “If not for Mike Huckabee, Wayne Dumond would have been in prison and Carol Sue would’ve been with us this year for Christmas.” How’s that for Season’s Greetings? The statement released with the link:
I saw Mrs. Davidson on CBS News last week talking about how Wayne Dumond murdered her daughter Carol Sue Shields. Shields was murdered because Mike Huckabee began pushing for Dumond’s freedom when he became governor. Dumond was eventually released.
There is no doubt Mrs. Davidson has a powerful story to tell, but I wasn’t sure she had an outlet to share it. I agreed with her that Mike Huckabee has no business being president.
I have always been a behind the scenes guy in Arkansas politics, working for Fay Boozman in 1998 and Senator Tim Hutchinson in 2002, so being out front on
anything political is highly unusual for me, but this is different.
I contacted Mrs. Davidson and asked her if she would be willing to speak on camera about her daughter, her daughter’s murderer, and the man who helped win his freedom. I got a camera crew to go with me to Missouri to Mrs. Davidson’s home. We filmed a very kind lady who shouldn’t have lost her daughter.
Mrs. Davidson’s story is important. It’s one that anyone voting in the Republican primaries should hear.
