Arizona Democrats call for Huppenthal’s resignation


VulturesIn case you missed it over the long 4th of July holiday weekend, the Democratic Caucus of the Arizona Legislature joined the growing chorus of educators and editorial opinions calling for Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal to resign. Failing that, voters need to turn out en masse to kick the corrupt Huppenthal to the curb. (The vultures are salivating for his carcass – h/t Arizona Daily Star).

Arizona Democrats call for Huppenthal’s resignation

STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Today Arizona Democrats at the Legislature together urged John Huppenthal to resign from his position as the state’s superintendent of public instruction.

Democrats from the Arizona House and Senate signed the letter, which was then hand delivered

to Huppenthal’s office.  The legislators told the superintendent they believe he now lacks the credibility necessary to hold the public’s trust.

“The comments Superintendent Huppenthal made were disrespectful, inappropriate and dehumanizing. He also attempted to deceive the public by promoting these statements anonymously and from an office provided at taxpayer expense,” Assistant House Minority Leader Bruce Wheeler, D-Tucson (District 10), said. “It is untrustworthy behavior.”

Wheeler added that Arizonans expect the superintendent to be a role model for the education community and that Huppenthal has failed.

“The majority of Arizonans support and embrace diversity,” Wheeler said. “That is why Huppenthal’s comments were so shocking. It is time for him to step down and allow a more trustworthy public servant to lead our school system.”

Letter below the fold.

  1. Good letter, except for the heading. The “Honorable John Huppenthal?” Anything but honorable. Where are the Republican voices? crickets.
