Jeers: Luna’s Chutzpah

In his weekly Cheers & Jeers column, Marty Trillhaase of the Lewiston Tribune jeers Idaho school Superintendent Tom Luna:

"Remember when the classic definition of chutzpah was a man who murdered his parents and then sought mercy from the sentencing judge because he'd become an orphan? Now Luna is the picture of audacity. First there was Luna 1.0. This was the firebrand who in 2002 ran for public education's top job as a foe of public education and lost. Next came Luna 2.0. Luna actually challenged his own Republican Party to come up with more money for public schools. Voters responded by electing Luna in 2006 and re-electing him four years later. Then there was Luna 3.0, the political bully who blindsided unsuspecting educators, students and voters with a series of bills to undermine teacher collective bargaining rights, install a rickety merit pay system and siphon off public dollars toward private purveyors of technology and online instruction - who just happened to be Luna's political backers"/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: Will Luna have a GOPrimary opponent in 2014?
