(Phoenix, AZ) -- The state schools chief is being outted in making a number of alarming blog comments under the pseudonym "Thucydides" . CBS Five News reports a lawyer for the website 'Blog For Arizona' traced the IP address to the DOE building, and ultimately, to Superintendent John Huppenthal. Attorney Bob Lord tells the station Huppenthal was posting on blogs like 'Seeing Red' and 'Democratic Diva.' He says at one time Huppenthal referred to poor people as "lazy pigs," and referred to a Tucson Mexican-American studies program as the "we hate whitey program." Huppenthal issued a statement admitting to the blog surname and his reason to engage in quote, "rigorous public discourse." He says the entries were taken completely out of context.
