Service Dogs Howl, Rep. Thorpe Loses With Dopey Bill
Rep. Bob Thorpe of Legislative District 6 again made a fool of himself by introducing a bill that would allow restaurant owners to ban service dogs.

It was laughed out of the Legislature and discarded.

The Arizona Republic called it a dopey bill.

In trying to seem like a regular guy at a candidate forum in Snowflake last year, Thorpe noted that although he doesn't have any dogs, he does have several tortoises.

It was not immediately clear what position Thorpe is now taking on the issue of service turtles, certainly high on his list as the state faces huge deficits, funding gaps for education and a disastrous failure to protect at-risk children.
