The Huckster pledges a frat -- TKE.
Forget Skull and Bones. Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is going TKE–Tau Kappa Epsilon. The fraternity is initiating Huckabee into their fold tomorrow [Tue., Dec. 12] in Little Rock, reports our Suzi Parker. Why Huckabee?
"He is, of course, a very impressive man, a dignified public servant. We look to men of high character and bring them into our brotherhood," says Kevin Mayeux, Tau Kappa Epsilon's CEO. During the initiation, Huckabee will learn about the fraternity's values and its history. He'll also learn the fraternity's secret handshake.
Ronald Reagan is the only president to have been a TKE.
Don't even bother asking. You can't dance with HIS date.
(Huck's son David was a Teke at ASU.)
