    I'm not excusing this whatsoever and just have a question totally separate of the case.

    How hard would it be for a covert agency to frame a government official by planting porn on his work computer? It wouldn't be that difficult would it? If our government got corrupt enough, is this a possibility? It would be a nice way to remove people in your way. No proof needed. Once something like this comes out you're finished. Your reputation is shot in the court of public opinion.

    No I'm not advocating any kind of conspiracy theory. Just asking your opinion on how hard this would be to do.

    not all that hard but since he resigned rather than fighting it I suspect he was a horn dog not a frame job victim

    And you call yourself very liberal
    Really? I thought he was a Democrat because it was not gay porn.

    Don't mind me. I'm just being a butthead tonight.

    maybe judges have units without censors though
    I think it's safe to say he's been operating his unit freely.

    Sometimes it is much easier and/or wiser to not fight certain things [like, for example, a court case where the jail sentence is great enoguh where turning down a probation sentence deal to fight the case is not wirth it]. Doesn't make you guilty or not guilty inherently.
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.
