"Sock-puppet-gate." You read it here first (at least I think you did, since I just made it up). It's getting increasing attention around the state, and it's starting to go national. This morning, it's the lead story on Talking Points Memo.

Not getting nearly enough coverage, however, is the sock puppet aspect of the comments. Huppenthal is emphasizing his right to free expression. But he's not mentioning that he's playing the guy behind the curtain shouting about "Hupp the Great and Powerful," while he's pretending someone else is singing his praises.
