Jon Justice: 'Call Chuck Huckelberry and Tell Him to Fire Richard Elias'

Posted By on Sat, Apr 30, 2011 at 8:00 AM

After an ACLU of Arizona panel discussion on medical marijuana on Wednesday, April 27, I talked a few minutes with Pima County Supervisor Richard Elias, who told me Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry's office was flooded that day with phone calls asking Huckelberry to fire public defense attorney Isabel Garcia and Elias for encouraging students to "riot" at the Tuesday meeting.

Why were the calls coming in? They were listeners of local conservative radio personality Jon Justice, who was encouraging listeners to not only call Huckelberry, but to also call TUSD Superintendent John Pedicone to fire governing board members Adelita Grijalva and Judy Burns for allowing students to "riot."

First, you can't fire elected officials, and Justice has already tried, albeit unsuccessfully, to get Garcia fired. Elias seemed good humored about the radio jock's continuous schtick, so he'll probably have good laugh over this video gem.

Enjoy:
