Convicted Felon Praises Huckabee’s 2016 Presidential Bid With Shout Of Hallelujah

After grifting untold millions out of old ladies, in 1988 Jim Bakker was sentenced to 45 years in federal prison following his conviction on 24 felony charges that included mail and wire fraud. Bakker was paroled after only five years when the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld his conviction but voided the original lengthy sentence. Bakker is back at his old con and yesterday hosted Mike Huckabee, who brought Bakker to his feet with a shout of “hallelujah” when Huckabee restated his possible run for president.
