Montana Chief U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull, a George W. Bush nominee, admitted on Wednesday that he forwarded a racially charged email implying that President Barack Obama might have been the product of a sexual encounter between his mother and a dog.
The email forwarded from Cebull’s official court email address on Feb. 20 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!’”
The federal judge’s email called the joke “a bit touching” and said he wanted all of his friends to feel what he felt when he read the email. “Hope it touches your heart like it did mine,” he wrote.
Cebull told the newspaper that his brother sent him the racist email which he then forwarded to six “old buddies” and acquaintances. A forwarded version of the email eventually made its way to a reporter at the Great Falls Tribune.
Rev. Al Sharpton, other political leaders and activist are calling for the Judge to be impeached, removed from the bench. His comments are not only derogatory, racist and a blatant disrespect to our commander and chief, but it expresses the outright disdain and hate towards President Obama.
