HELENA – U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals chief Judge Alex Kozinski has appointed a special judicial committee to investigate misconduct allegations against Montana chief U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull, who in February sent an e-mail from his federal courthouse chambers that contained a racist and misogynistic joke about President Obama‘s mother.
The forwarded text of the joke contained in the e-mail read:
“A little boy said to his mother; ‘Mommy, how come I’m black and you’re white?’ His mother replied, ‘Don’t even go there, Barack! From what I can remember about that party, you’re lucky you don’t bark!’ “
