Oops. Somebody else besides us remembers Mike Huckabee's ties to the strange Indian evangelist K.A. Paul (pictured), now apparently on a hunger strike.
The wild and the weird "Dr. Paul", a Christian evangelist whose main claim to fame is barging through former Speaker of the US House of Representatives Dennis Hastert's home security ring, is on a hunger strike in a hotel he and his followers have apparently taken over in Bangalore, India.
The knowledge that presidential contender Mike Huckabee once rubbed shoulders with "Dr. Paul" also is a bit odd. But it proves the old adage that politicians will do anything to pander for votes.
