There is a rumor afloat that Mike Hucakbee, former Arkansas governor and Republican Presidential candidate, may have had gastric bypass surgery. This would be a major blow to his integrity as he claims he lost the weight by exercising and diet.
Mike Huckabee became one of those annoying people who lectured you about being more healthy along the lines of "If I can do it, so can you...". The thing that made it worse was as Governor of the fair state of Arkansas he could attempt to use the power of the state to badger you about this.
If he did do surgery instead of using diet and exercise, which he has explicitly denied, then shame on him and the many people supporting him in the polls. Anyway, see a more cogent article here Did Huckabee Just Get Nuked?
