State Rep. Jon Hubbard still on tear over immigrants

Speaking of audits: State Rep. Jon Hubbard of Jonesboro needs a mental one

Now, Stephens Media reports, he wants to spend state money to audit whether the University of Arkansas spent any money in a recent campus discussion on the life of undocumented immigrants. He's sure Chancellor David Gearhart hasn't told him the truth in saying no money was spent. Why, the chancellor might have called somebody and invited him to attend or otherwise publicized the event.

Here's the thing: IT DOESN'T MATTER. It doesn't matter if the UA rented the Ritz Carlton to hold this confab. If a university cannot hold a discussion on the plight of unauthorized immigrants, it can't discuss any element of society that a wackjob like Hubbard might prefer be kept secret from impressionable students. Education would be limited to topics Hubbard holds suitable.

Hubbard will continue wasting the time and money of a state oversight agency for his mean-spirited and maniacal pursuit of the brown people. If no other Republican is defeated this fall, Hubbard's defeat would lift civility, compassion and reason in the chamber exponentially.
