Here Comes the Judge! 

Via an interesting conversation in the law review office:

Here Comes the Judge!
While seated on the bench, an Oklahoma judge used a male enhancement pump, shaved and oiled his nether region, and pleasured himself, state officials charged yesterday in a petition to remove the jurist.
Now that's pretty bad...but
The AG's petition quotes Thompson (pictured above) as admitting that the pump was "under the bench" during the murder case (and at other times), but he denied using the item, which was supposedly a "gag gift from a friend."
The petition is posted at The Smoking Gun and if you click the link above you can read it. It gets way worse, but I won't trouble you with the details.

There's a whole lot of comedic material that could come out of judges through their untoward activities (get it?). But we should make clear that some of these activities affect their ability to judge and some don't. I think shaving your goodies and using a penis pump while actually on the bench probably falls in the former category.

Judges smoking pot in their off time, however, ought to fall in the latter (along with judges having a few drinks in their off time).

Betcha didn't expect me to turn this into a semi-serious post with a real point, did you?
