Gov. Huckabee on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace:
Chris Wallace: But, Governor, forgive me. I don't think that's right. All the way back in 1985, this wasn't political correctness. The Centers for Disease Control back in '85, seven years before you made your statement, said that AIDS could not be spread by casual contact.
Gov. Huckabee: There was also the case of Kimberly Bergalis, who testified before Congress in 1991. She had contracted AIDS from her dentist . . . I knew people who had AIDS. I had a close friend who died of it in the 1980s. He was a hemophiliac. He contracted it through a blood transfusion. I had other friends of mine, one of whom passed away — he was, in fact, homosexual.
