Luna Claims Vandalism IEA ‘Thuggery’

A pick-up truck that belongs to to Idaho Department of Education Superintendent Tom Luna is shown outside his Nampa home Tuesday. Vandals slashed two tires and spray-painted the truck of Luna, as the furor over his proposed education reforms appeared to grow uglier. Hearings on the education reforms were expected to continue Tuesday in the Idaho Senate, where the legislation was introduced earlier this month and is now being reworked amid opposition from teachers, parents and some lawmakers.

Question: Luna blames the attack on "union thuggery" (Idaho Education Association), despite the clear condemnation of this event by IEA representatives. Should he have made that claim without evidence?
