Remember Judge Mike Maggio? We wrote about him last July after he negated a unanimous jury verdict. He declared that the jury’s judgment of $5.2 million was excessive, and arbitrarily reduced it to $1 million. Well, he is back in the news for racist, sexist, and bigoted comments on blogs.
For example, Judge Maggio wrote that if you have gay sex, then it is just a “small step” to sex with a dog and “Sluts are just whores in training.” Women shouldn’t make an “emotional decision to divorce because the husband stepped out” if he was a “good provider.” Those are just some of the writings uncovered after the Arkansas blog Blue Hog Report discovered that an pseudonymous commenter on a message board for Louisiana State University fans was sitting Arkansas state Judge Mike Maggio. Judge Maggio, who posted under the username “geauxjudge” offered questionable views on race, sexuality, women and many other issues.
Maggio’s most disturbing statement, however, may be a description of something called “Rodeo sex,” which appears to be when man tries to physically force a woman to continue having sex with him after he has said something to her that causes her to withdraw her consent.
How can he still be a judge after the people of Arkansas discover his views on race, sex, and homosexuality?
