So, the latest expose to come out about Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal is that he trolls on both liberal and conservative blogs using the names Thucydides and Falcon 9, defending none other than (drum roll please) John Huppenthal! And many of the comments can be traced back to the IP address of the Arizona Department of Education. WOW!

From having a tug of war with an 80-year-old woman over his removal of a competitive candidate’s sign when he ran for the Arizona Senate a few years ago, to his making robocalls as Superintendent of PUBLIC Instruction encouraging parents to put their kids in private schools, Huppenthal has proven over and over again that he does not have the ethics and integrity to be an elected official.

Parents of children in publicly funded school districts and charter schools, I ask you, is Huppenthal the type of role model you want for your child? Is this someone who should be heading the Arizona Department of Education?
