Montana Chief Federal Judge Admits Sending Racist Email on Obama


Montana Chief U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull admitted to sending a racially charged email about President Barack Obama from his courthouse chambers, reports the Great Falls Tribune. Cebull is a nominee of former President George W. Bush. The message said, “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 judge acknowledged that the content of the email was racist, but said he does not consider himself racist. He said the email was intended to be a private communication. Cebull said his brother initially sent him the email, which he forwarded to six of his “old buddies” and acquaintances. “The only reason I can explain it to you is I am not a fan of our president, but this goes beyond not being a fan,” Cebull said. “I didn’t send it as racist, although that’s what it is. I sent it out because it’s anti-Obama.”
