(User Submitted) – Arizona commissioner Gary Pierce has sent a letter to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa wondering if the mayor feels so strongly about his city's boycott that he wants the electricity it gets from Arizona turned off as well. LA currently receives 25% of its power from the state, and the commissioner would like to see how serious the LA mayor is with his threatened boycott. Hot Air, which obtained the letter, has the full story here.
