Huckabee once advocated isolating AIDS patients from public
Mike Huckabee once advocated isolating AIDS patients from the general public, opposedincreased federal funding in the search for a cure and saidhomosexuality could "pose a dangerous public health risk."
As a candidate for a U.S. Senateseat in 1992, Huckabee answered 229 questions submitted to him by TheAssociated Press. Besides a quarantine, Huckabee suggested thatHollywood celebrities fund AIDS research from their own pockets, ratherthan federal health agencies.
Huckabee said Saturday that his comments came at a time when thepublic was still learning about HIV and AIDS and promised to do"everything possible to transform the promise of a vaccine and a cureinto reality."
So when you're learning, are you supposed to jump to conclusions like that?
