RTP has learned that a group of 15 legislators have just sent a letter to Gov. Bill Haslam, demanding the resignation of his Commissioner of Education Kevin Huffman.
There has been ample grousing about the arrogance and competence of Huffman (who, if you have not yet heard, publicly bragged about voting for Barack Obama shortly before Haslam appointed him head of the DOE). To date only one legislator — Rep. Rick Womick (R-Rutherford) — had publicly called for Huffman’s ouster. Womick is believed to be one of the letter’s signatories.
Details to follow shortly.
