Who Have You Wronged, Mr. Maggio? Hog Nation Turns Its Angry Eyes To You. (Woo woo wooooo.)

March 3, 2014

While some here might consider it a character flaw, I must admit that I have at least one friend who considers himself an LSU fan.

Recently, he sent me a screenshot from an LSU message board — TigerDroppings.com – and asked, “Assuming the poster in this screenshot is actually a judge, (a) isn’t his posting this a pretty big deal and (b) think you can figure out who he is?”

My friend isn’t a lawyer, so I expected that the screenshot would be something a little strange but not anything worth digging into.  Then I looked at it.

Of course, because adoptions are confidential, we have no way of proving that this actually happened beyond circumstantial proof.  Timing-wise, the post would fit, however.  Also, the poster gave other information that matches up:

Theron 2

So, if you start from the premise that the poster is a judge and is telling the truth about the adoption, this post is a big deal in terms of judicial ethics.  A big enough deal, in fact, that I decided to dig into it and see if I could figure out the judge’s identity.

Imagine my surprise, then, when it quickly became obvious that it was an Arkansas judge: Circuit Judge and Court of Appeals Candidate Mike Maggio.  Even more surprising, in addition to leaking confidential adoption information, Judge Maggio apparently has a habit of making sexist, racist, and homophobic comments.  A lot of them.

But let’s back up.  First, how do I know it’s Judge Maggio?

Well, we know that Judge Maggio went to Millsaps for undergrad, then went to Ole Miss for the first two years of law school before transferring to the University of Arkansas-Little Rock to finish.  And Geauxjudge?

Millsaps

Transfer Law School

We know that Mike Maggio graduated from St. Stanislaus High School in Bay St. Louis, MS, in 1979.  And geauxjudge?

Plus, geauxjudge seems very, very well-versed in the athletic exploits of Judge Maggio’s daughter (click to enlarge).

Based on all of that, I’m more than comfortable concluding that geauxjudge is Mike Maggio.  What I’m less comfortable with is the types of things that Judge Maggio thinks it is alright to post under a pseudonym.  We’ll break them into categories below, but this represents a “Greatest Hits” at most.  And I only went back three years, so who knows what a person might find if you went back past February 2011.

Also, for context as to why these are problematic (beyond just the sheer bigotry and ignorance), I suppose you need to be aware of a few rules that apply to judges.

Rule 1.2. A judge shall act at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the independence, integrity, and impartiality of the judiciary, and shall avoid impropriety and the appearance of impropriety.

Official Comment [2]: A judge should expect to be the subject of public scrutiny that might be viewed as burdensome if applied to other citizens, and must accept the restrictions imposed by the Code.

Official Comment [6]: Actual improprieties include violations of law, court rules or provisions of this Code. The test for appearance of impropriety is whether the conduct would create in reasonable minds a perception that the judge violated this Code or engaged in other conduct that reflects adversely on the judge’s honesty, impartiality, temperament, or fitness to serve as a judge.

Rule 3.1. A judge may engage in extrajudicial activities, except as prohibited by law or this Code. However, when engaging in extrajudicial activities, a judge shall not: [***]
(C) participate in activities that would appear to a reasonable person to undermine the judge’s independence, integrity, or impartiality.

Official Comment [3]: Discriminatory actions and expressions of bias or prejudice by a judge, even outside the judge’s official or judicial actions, are likely to appear to a reasonable person to call into question the judge’s integrity and impartiality. Examples include jokes or other remarks that demean individuals based upon their personal characteristics.

Makes sense, right? Right. So, without further ado, I present:

JUDGE MIKE MAGGIO’S THOUGHTS ON MEN & WOMEN

Two Needs Wagon

Golden Vagina 1

Sluts and Whores

Before He Cheats

Rodeo Sex

Women Stay Together

Bulges 1

He also opines on relations post-marriage,  makes that same “joke” about bulges many times, why a man should sell Mary Kay,   repeats the wisdom about “golden vaginas”, explains why women generally shouldn’t get alimony, thinks that you should “raise your own kids” instead of paying for childcare, refers to “Vitamin P”, implies that American education is failing because all the easy girls major in education, laughing about “riding” bi-polar women, talks about gynecology, says women are ridiculous because they want husbands who don’t work all the time, refers to wives as “chattel”,  references his own sexual shortcomings, and . . . whatever the hell this is.

JUDGE MIKE MAGGIO’S THOUGHTS ON RACE

Black By Injection

Drink Like Indians

Teepee or Hotel

White Tattoos

Light Skinned Owners

Segregation Theater

(I have my doubts on this one.  True Grit was released in June 1969, when Maggio was 7 or 8.  Malco Theaters had integrated their southern movie houses in 1962.  It seems highly unlikely that there was still an overtly segregated theater, even in Mississippi, by summer of 1969.)

Names 2

Names

Asian Man

JUDGE MIKE MAGGIO’S THOUGHTS ON HOMOSEXUALITY

Disneyworld Gay 2

Gay Week at DW

Gay Sex Bestiality

Gay Lesbian and Cheating

LGBT Poly

 

Bike Riders

 

Forced Knees

JUDGE MIKE MAGGIO’S THOUGHTS ON ARKANSAS (STATE & FOOTBALL)

Jen B 2

Jen Porkin

Van Buren

Arkansas Incest Squeal

Arkansas Incest 5

Arkansas Incest 4

Arkansas Incest 2

Arkansas Incest caps

Arkansas Squeal

Arkansas Bestiality Ha Ha

That wouldn’t be a defense at all.  But why should a judge in Arkansas know the importance of Arkansas Supreme Court case holdings?

JUDGE MIKE MAGGIO’S THOUGHTS ON MISCELLANEOUS STUFF

WW2 Income Taxes

Yeah…that’s not even remotely right.

Joe Kennedy

Joe Kennedy had exclusive import rights for Dewar’s and Haig & Haig, both of which he obtained in the 1920s.  He did not become Ambassador to the United Kingdom until 1938.  But, you know, cool guys like Maggio don’t actually care about facts.

ADD Game System

Vibrator Pants

French

That’s just . . . yeah.  Unfunny (in any language), juvenile, and a butchered attempt to seem like he speaks French.

Again, this guy is running for Arkansas Court of Appeals.  After putting this post together, I can’t fathom a reason that anyone who wasn’t also a terrible person would vote for the man.  But I’ve been disappointed by such outcomes before.

    If he’s stupid, he’ll start denying. If he’s got half a brain, he eats it now and hopes it goes away by November.

    I’ve definitely posted things online I wish I could take back. But this is ridiculous. He must not work much if he’s got all this time to frequent the blog-o-sphere.

    • Matt Campbell on March 3, 2014 at 2:13 pm

      Judicial elections are in May. Gonna be hard to outrun this, even if he admits it.

      Denial would be very, very bad for him.

    I was so disgusted I signed for a free trial of IMDB Pro so I could contact Ms Theron’s agent, publicist, and attorney. What an asshole.

  4. LB on March 3, 2014 at 2:11 pm

    Good for you, TML!! We’ve got resources at our fingertips these days. We CAN make a change in the system. Starting with stuff like this. Keep us posted if you get a response!

  5. TheMacyLady on March 3, 2014 at 2:35 pm

    I got a response. Her attorney’s office is on it! I hope he gets sued and disbarred.

    • Matt Campbell on March 3, 2014 at 4:11 pm

      Well done. Feel free to have them email/call me if there’s any way I can assist.

    • Matt Campbell on March 4, 2014 at 10:32 am

      Can you email me the contact info for her agent/attorney?

    Judge Maggio has also been involved in a horrible child custody case: Mossholder vs Coker. He and judge Foster have, by inaction allowed the continual rape and abuse of 2 children who have had the unfortunate luck of having a mother with no political influence.
    The case number is:DR 2011-454

    • libertas on March 6, 2014 at 9:58 pm

      The correct case No. is 23DR-07-57. Judge Maggio sent the children back to their abuser for “supervised” visits after another judge issued an order of protection because of the father’s family, the mother was just a “stripper.” The abuser now has custody and the mother’s parental rights have been stripped without ever even being accused of abuse or neglect. Since he’s made it known how he feels about women at least now the mother knows why he did what he did.

      The number of people involved in this disgusting nightmare and coverup is a scandal beyond all comprehension.
