This happened today in Arizona. John Huppenthal “repudiated” his anonymous blog posts but he won’t resign as Arizona’s Superintendent of Public Instruction. No flipping way. Huppenthal needs to resign right now for what he wrote and what he has done in the past. Karma sucks, John. Time to go. Step away from it all. This is no longer about blog posts. This is about a public official entrusted to the education of children abusing the trust of the people he elected to serve, abusing his power to allow for the marginalization of a community and then hiding behind anonymity. There was clearly an ulterior motive here, and hubris got the best of you, John.
