Porn star date leads to teacher’s resignation

Disabled man won night with Akira on ‘Bubba the Love Sponge’ show

MONESSEN, Pa. - A Monessen High School teacher resigned after winning a date with a porn star during a satellite radio contest. The school board voted to accept Jaison Biagini's resignation on Tuesday.

While listening to the "Bubba the Love Sponge" radio show on Sirius satellite radio, Biagini won the trip last month to St. Petersburg, Fla., to meet with 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. He also expressed concerns about his teaching job.

Biagini contended the radio host chastised him, saying Biagini knew full well what the contest was about.

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."
