John Huppenthal Most Likely Did Not Post on White Nationalist Site Stormfront.org
I'm supposed to be off this week, using vacation time I don't normally use. But to quote Al Pacino in The Godfather, Part III, "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in."
See, I happened to spot an item on Tucson Weekly's website by writer David Safier titled, "Is There A Huppenthal/Stormfront Connection?"
I have some information relevant to that question, which is why I feel the need to break radio silence.
Uriel Garcia Huppenthal, a poster to Stormfront? Probably not.
Schools Superintendent John Huppenthal, as nearly everyone knows, recently admitted to posting comments to various blogs under such sock puppets as "Thucydides" and "Falcon9."
Former Congressional candidate Bob Lord was the first to out Huppenthal as a serial sock-puppet-user on the influential, lefty site Blog for Arizona. All credit is due Lord and his compatriots.
The local media simply has been following the Lord. Me included.
The superintendent even broke down in tears during a press conference on the subject, and there have been calls from all sides for his resignation. Huppenthal, who is running for re-election, refuses to do so.
On Stormfront, there are several posts under the handle "Thucydides" from February of this year.
Safier concludes that Huppenthal probably visited the site, at the very least.
