    Just another example of the hate-filled far right wing characters.
    (Reuters) - A federal judge in Montana who used official court email to circulate a racist joke about President Barack Obama has acknowledged the indiscretion and initiated a misconduct complaint against himself, court officials said on Thursday.

    The scandal prompted government ethics watchdog group Common Cause and the Montana Human Rights Network to call on Thursday for the resignation of the Billings-based judge, Richard Cebull, the chief judge for the U.S. judicial district in Montana.

    PC, poor taste, sense of humor aside...if the judge didn't send the offending email from his chambers, would this be an offense?

    Or better put, is an elected judge 'on duty' 24/7? Should their personal correspondence be public because they serve the public?

    I vasciliate on this issue.

    Was it a joke about cutting Obama's nuts off?
