Ex-Secretary Launches Luna Recall

A retired secretary who worked at Mountain Home Air Force Base for 22 years is attempting to fly an idea that has never succeeded in Idaho history. “I know,” said Nancy Berto, who formed the Committee to Recall Tom Luna. “Not in 121 years. That it’s never been done before keeps us motivated, and they didn’t have Facebook and e-mail back then.” Berto has attended protests against Luna’s three big education reform bills with “Stop the Lunacy” and “Save Our Schools” signs. Despite overwhelming public testimony against the plan backed by Luna and GOP Gov. Butch Otter, two of the three bills are expected to get final legislative approval in the House Tuesday. The third bill is stalled in the Senate/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: Even if the long-shot recall effort fails, do you think it could be the spark to launch a movement against the lurch to the Far Right by the Idaho Legislature?
