Mike Huckabee's love of material things continues to gain notice, thanks to his own testimony. In an interview this week with Karen Tumulty of the Washington Post, Huckabee declined to talk about the price tag on the home he's building on the Gulf Coast near Destin, but bragged, "Our first apartment was $40 a month. Our closet in this house will probably be as large as that tiny little apartment."
Janet Huckabee's comment in a Little Rock interior design shop about her husband's closet led to our discovery of the Huckabode (hidden behind the shell of an anonymous trust and carrying a $2.8 million mortgage).
Huckabee's closet fetish caught the attention of sowal.com, a website that follows Florida real estate. Said one commenter on the Huckabee house: "I've seen the prints for it, and not only is it HUGE, but the His walk in closet is way bigger than the hers!!! A lot of suits and ties at the beach I guess..."
Responded another: "A conservative religious figure with a huge closet?"
