Comedian Warns Otter, Luna

Boise comedian Pete Peterson said his third attempt to gather 158,000 signatures and force a recall vote depends on whether Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna and Gov. Butch Otter attempt to re-enact the laws widely rejected by voters in November. "If Butch and Luna reintroduce the three Luna laws or some variation of those it could generate another firestorm that would eclipse anything that happened in 2011," Peterson said Tuesday. Both Otter and Luna have said there are aspects of the laws they will seek to revive during the 2013 Legislature, but neither has been specific. If their aims are modest — for example paying for high school students to earn college credits — Peterson said he will drop the recall idea. "Then, this thing will fizzle," Peterson said. "We're prepared either way. We'll reevaluate things at the end of January"/Kevin Richert, Idaho Statesman.

Question: Do you think there'll be another petition drive and possible recall effort if Gov. Butch Otter and Superintendent Tom Luna try to resurrect most of the failed Luna Laws?
