One more for the Hanging Judge

You may remember Donald Thompson from the following lojinks:

Attorney General Drew Edmondson has filed an official complaint against Judge Thompson, charging him with, um, banging his gavel, so to speak.

Or this:

Thompson came under fire for sending Johnson up for a long stretch, so to speak, and gave up his bench; he has entered a plea of Not Guilty to three counts of indecent exposure.

Or this:

Former judge Donald Thompson, who resigned from office after charges of manually-operated sexual misconduct were brought against him, is facing new charges: improper use (or, more precisely, non-use) of briefs during trials, and storage of inappropriate materials on his office computer.

I guess the man truly loves the limelight:

A former Creek County judge convicted of indecent exposure was arrested early this morning on a drunken driving complaint.

Donald Thompson, 62, was arrested by an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper about 3 a.m. on a complaint of driving under the influence of alcohol. He was taken to the Tulsa County jail.

Thompson served two years in prison for indecent exposure for using a penis pump while he was on the bench during court proceedings. Thompson lost his law license by [order of] the Oklahoma Supreme Court earlier this year.

I suppose it’s a good thing he actually had pants on for once.

One more incident, though, and I’ll probably have to give Thompson his own farging category.

    I guess “sober as a judge” just doesn’t mean much any more.

    “Manually-operated?”

    MAN-you-ally? As opposed to what? Electronic? Automated? V*ginally?

    Would you call it “Here come da judge”?
