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.
A 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?
