I wrote it on the Internet, so it must be true.

Sometimes the problem with posting noxious stuff on message boards and blog comment threads isn’t that recruits will read it.  It’s that somebody will figure out who the author is.  And that’s not a good thing when the author is a sitting judge.

An Arkansas circuit judge has called off his campaign for higher office after he confessed to making what some deemed to be offensive comments under an alias on the LSU fan message board, TigerDroppings.

political blogger first suggested on Monday (March 3) that Arkansas Circuit Judge Mike Maggio was behind the pseudonym “geauxjudge” in a post on his website, Blue Hog Report, according to The Associated Press. Maggio acknowledged the comments were his on Wednesday (March 5), apologized and ended his campaign for a seat on the Arkansas Court of Appeals.

Sitting in his courtroom’s gotta be a blast.

“These comments are not a reflection of who I am.”  Is there an Internet troll who doesn’t believe that with all his or her heart?

  1. Proof of 1.) You can’t fix stupid 2.) There’s plenty of idiocy to go around in the public sector 3.) These idiots aren’t as untouchable as they believe. Cover-ups are hard.

    Speaking of trolls, does a certain new handle on this blog remind anyone else of the late, lamented great Dog of BuLL?

    Not too familiar with the demographics of the 20th Circuit in Arkansas, but I can’t imagine such comments would be a death blow among voters in Conway, Marshall, and Clinton :)

    I can’t lead this double life anymore – I’m the Duke of Sasmatachiwana.

    Tough tacos judge. You ain’t the first one to be Mr. Hyde on sports blogs, hiding behind an anonymous handle (I plead guilty too).

      It’s funny how we so frequently see things like this. A guy says sexist, racist, and homophobic things only be outed as a sexist, racist, homophobe. Then they let everyone know they they don’t actually believe those things there they clearly do actually believe. It happens with politicians most of all. They’re upset that they got caught with these terrible beliefs, but they don’t actually feel bad for having the beliefs.

        Oh, glad you cleared that up, judge.

          Geez Scorp, don’t be so judgmental. He’s working on a faux apology. Here’s his first draft:

          “If I have offended anybody such as the entire State of Arkansas, LGBTs nationwide, wives (get a real job) whose husbands are screwing out on them, wide-dicked Asian men (Ha-Ha), Blacks without White ink tattoos, Indians (teepee and hotel), St. Stanislaus High School, Jen ‘Blackjack’ Bielema, Black by injection Kardashians, Millsaps, the Kennedy Family, the good people at tigerdroppings.com, Charlize who is dating a Commie, my wife’s sister and rodeo participants everywhere because I had been running for the Arkansas Court of Appeals but pulled of the race and I know that’s no way to go rodeo!”

          “Rodeo sex…Bend her over, slide in from behind, put your arm around her neck, lean forward, then whisper in her ear…’this is how your sister liked it’ … Then try to hold on for 8 seconds”

      To help get the mind of geauxjudge right so he’s not so grumpy, Jen would like him to know that, “Time flies when you’re happy and in love!”
