The art teacher and the porn star

A Pennsylvania high school teacher resigned his job after his date with a porn star — a radio station promotion — was publicized. Jason Biagini won the trip last month to St. Petersburg, Fla. to “date” porn star Akira.

Biagini, who uses a wheelchair, was interviewed on the radio show after returning home, and told the Valley Independent in Monessen that he was ridiculed for his disability and offended by how he was portrayed on the show . . .

Biagini, who taught art for 14 years at the school, said he entered the contest because he wanted to win the free trip and visit the Salvador Dali museum in St. Petersburg. He described the date as being “all fake and staged.”

No kidding.

Biagini may not have the best judgment, but did he really have to resign over this?

    Perhaps he just couldn’t stop grinning long enough to teach.
