Comedian Revives Effort To Recall Idaho School Superintendent Tom Luna

Stand-up comic Ron “Pete” Peterson, who finished fourth with 5 percent of the vote in the 2010 GOP primary, says he’s organizing another run at removing Idaho Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna from office. Peterson, of Boise, was a key player in the effort that fell more than 100,000 signatures short of putting a Luna recall on the Aug. 30 ballot. Now, Peterson says, he’s aiming for the Nov. 6, 2012, general election. About 158,000 signatures are necessary to force an election. According to the Idaho Statesman Peterson says he’s serious about recalling Luna, whose “Students Come First” laws will be subject to voter rejection on Nov. 6, 2012, after organizers gathered more than 70,000 signatures on three petitions to overturn the laws. Luna was elected to a second term in 2010, which ends in January 2015. He calls the plan “fraudulent at best. Peterson says spent $3,000 in June on last-minute advertising to help the recall effort because he believed organizers who said they had 75,000 of the 158,000 signatures necessary for a recall. Later, the recall campaign acknowledged gathering about 50,000 signatures. About 158,000 signatures are necessary to force an election.
