Check out what Judge Richard Cebull was forwarding to his people:
SMH. And check out his lame azz apology:
An appellate court will conduct a judicial misconduct review of Montana’s chief federal judge, who sent an email to friends that contained a racist joke involving bestiality and President Barack Obama’s mother. Judge Richard Cebull also plans to send Obama a formal apology, but that has not stopped calls for the judge’s resignation.
“If he has any respect for his office and for ideals of equality and human dignity on which our country was founded, Judge Cebull will step down today,” said Bob Edgar, the president and chief executive of Common Cause. Common Cause filed a complaint Thursday against Cebull with the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Cebull also asked for a review by the appellate court, effectively filing a complaint against himself.
The appellate court’s judicial council will lead the investigation and “is expected to act expeditiously,” court executive Cathy Catterson said in a statement. Cebull’s apology plans were confirmed by Jed Link, a spokesman for U.S. Rep. Denny Rehberg, who spoke by phone with Cebull.
“Judge Cebull apologized and Denny took his apology to be heartfelt and sincere. Judge Cebull also indicated that he is sending a formal apology to President Obama and that he is asking the 9th Circuit to review the matter,” Link said. Cebull on Wednesday admitted that he forwarded the email Feb. 20, but he told The Great Falls Tribune newspaper that he did so because he disliked Obama, not from racism.
Cebull told the newspaper that his brother sent him the email, and he passed it on to six “old buddies” and acquaintances. It began with the preface: “Normally I don’t send or forward a lot of these, but even by my standards, it was a bit touching. I want all of my friends to feel what I felt when I read this. Hope it touches your heart like it did mine.”
This guy is just mad he got caught. He’s not really sorry.
