Huffines became an executive at the securities firm Morgan Keegan after it acquired his Capitol Securities Group in ’93. As appointments secretary to Gov. Bill Clements in ’89, Huffines reportedly threatened to veto the bills of state senators who voted to reject Clements’ appointees. One senator said Huffines asked him, “Is this vote worth risking your entire legislative program?” Other senators said Huffines warned them that, “We’re taking names.” The incident prompted an apology from Clements Chief of Staff George Bayoud, Jr., another Pioneer.
