Tom Horne and John Huppenthal's Ethnic Studies War: Fate of MAS in Federal Judge's Hands, Yet Again
If you believe life is less complex in the land of the lefties, you're in for a big disappointment
Actually, the dedicated and courageous MAS instructors Horne maligns were intent on making sure that underprivileged and at-risk Hispanic kids had a chance at higher education, or at least high-school graduation.
Those are goals they excelled at achieving, according to a study commissioned by none other than Huppenthal himself, though Huppy was hoping for far different conclusions.
And that's what made the MAS educators targets of the far right, and red meat for shameless opportunists such as Horne, a man who believes in nothing save self-advancement, at any cost.
But as I've illustrated at length recently, Horne has self-destructed over Chenal-gate, the victim of his own lust, paranoia and perverse corruption. He has all the credibility of Donald Trump on President Obama's birth certificate. Maybe less.
As for his objection, if I were one of the Assistant Attorney Generals who affixed their names to this steaming pile of far right ideology masquerading as a legal brief, I would be embarrassed beyond belief.
So here they are, making their moms proud in service to a political sociopath who will go down in Arizona history as Tom "Hit-and-Run" Horne, the gold Jag-driving, ugly-bumping, falafel-noshing, Cuban-cuddling loser: Kevin Ray, Esq., Leslie Kyman Cooper, Esq., and Jinju Park, Esq.
And no, I don't feel sorry for them. There's honest work to be had at the public defender's office. Not to mention the local car wash.
If Judge Bury ultimately okays the USP, Horne will have to go pound sand.
That's the opinion of Tucson attorney Richard Martinez, who represents plaintiffs in a separate complaint in federal court, which argues that HB 2281 is unconstitutional and should be overturned.
I asked him what Horne could do, if Bury says grace over the Unitary Status Plan.
"Probably not a damn thing," he told me. "They would have to go back to Huppenthal and start the process all over again against the district."
