BUSH JUDICIAL APPOINTEE ARRESTED FOR DRUNKEN DRIVING-- IN FULL DRAG

>

Often Judge Somma wore men's clothing as well

I have nothing against cross-dressers. It's not personally my thing but if it makes someone happy... God bless. Bastions of society's status quo have usually been unkind-- and sometimes quite violent (see "the derivation of the word faggot)-- towards cross-dressers. Yet Hercules, Achilles, Athena, Thor, Odin, and Arjuna all had their cross-dressing phases and even the Catholic Church was always willing to make exceptions, like the endless plethora of "holy saints" in their mythology-- not to mention Pope Joan and Joan of Arc. More recently we've had Eddie Izzard, Kurt Cobain, Pete Burns, Boy George, Marilyn Manson, and Divine.

People have chastised me when Adam portrays Republican closet queens, like Miss McConnell and Larry Craig as cross dressers. He's just trying to make a point about closets and hypocrisy. Adam loves cross dressers; he's from South Florida. Now, you might ask, if you're one of the 26-27% of Americans who still thinks George Bush is doing a fine job acting as president, what he thinks of cross dressers. After all, today we discovered that he appointed one to the Federal Bench. Maybe we didn't give him enough credit! We must ask McCain his opinion, since his biggest claim to the Bush mantle of leadership is a solemn vow that he will appoint the same sorts of judges that Bush has. Let me introduce you to the hastily-resigned Judge Robert Somma, appointed by Bush in 2004. A few days ago Judge Somma's Mercedes-Benz E320 rammed a pick-up truck at 11:30 PM. No one was hurt but the police were called and it was duly noted that the Judge spent a good deal of time fumbling through his purse before finding his driver's license.
"He had a difficult time locating his license in his purse. He passed over it multiple times before removing it," officer Paul J. Thompson wrote in his report.
 
The officer offered no other details with regard to the judge's attire or accessories. Nor would representatives of the Manchester Police Department or the city solicitor's office, which worked out the negotiated plea agreement with Somma's lawyer.
 
When authorities removed him from the vehicle, they said he wore a black women's cocktail dress, fishnet stockings and high heels.

...The arresting officer reported Somma smelled of alcohol, slurred his speech and fell backwards against the door frame while getting out of his car.

His mug shot also shows he was wearing blue eye shadow. The judge wasn't coming home from a fancy dress ball or a late season Halloween Party. He had been imbibing gin and tonic as the Breezeway Pub, which advertises itself as "New Hampshire's favorite gay and alternative bar." On the first and third Thursday of every month they have a Goth Night. The Judge is apparently not a Goth fan, but on the second and fourth Thursdays... Kamikaze Drag.

Local news reports mention that Judge Somma resigned after pleading guilty to drunken driving. Other than the gay press, no one mentioned the black evening gown and fishnet stockings.

Aw, this could happen to anybody (yes I agree getting caught is for losers).

Was he a gaybasher or anything?

The sole fact that he was a Bush appointee - to the bankruptcy court, no less - should not make this guy fair game for ridicule. If you have more, spill it. Otherwise, back off. This would be a great world if all of us had the courage and lived in circumstances that allowed us to be open and honest about all the details of our lives. When some of us can't manage that, it's pathetic that, even if we've done nothing to harm or disparage other queers, our own 'community' revels in savaging them.

I doubt he was a gay-basher and I don't want to make a big fuss about this-- although he did donate money to Mitt Romney. I think it would be great if Bush and McCain appointed more cross-dressers to be judges.

I would think he resigned because he was caught drunk driving, imperiling the lives of others like gay people regularly do with unsafe sex and drug use. It probably had far less to do with being in drag.

Do you think if this had been a Clinton appointee that it would have even been brought up on this site? My guess is no.

If he had been a Clinton appointee, the news would have gone around the world five times by now.

The proper term for this person is not "Cross-Dresser" since there is no disclosure as to the depth of her gender identity disorder. The umbrella term for such people is transgender.

Transgender people may be straight or gay in their sexual orientation, therefore it is possible for her to be straight and married to a woman as well as being transgender since transgender has to do with gender issues rather than sexual orientation.

When referring to transgender people usage of the proper gendered nouns is of great import since it is disrespectful to do otherwise. Hence my usage of she/her.

I disagree most strongly with anonymous. ANY public figure is fair game. That so many GOP men seem to advocate one rule for others and a separate for themselves, and then get caught in such situations is important to publish. I have no objection to what anyone does in private but I resent having one set of values held for me and another for these cretins. The hypocrisy of he GOP is well established and each time one of them is hoist on his or her own petard is newsworthy. By the way anonymous, it is this sort of person who prevents many from living openly and honestly, they create fear which keeps many in the closet. Your ranting does little to improve things.

Fine, the next time some liberal/Democrat apppointee, public official, etc. does something, I'd LOVE to see it posted here. I'm not holding my breath though...especially if said individual has done things to advance the gay-rights cause, which seems to be a cause-celeb around here.

Well, I think DWT is hard on hypocrits, fascists, tyrranists? And those in power that show very poor judgement, which is the class I had to drop this one in.

Interesting discussion though since what little I know is that most cross dressers are not gay, and there was nothing to indicate "the judge" is transgender, only dumb enough to drink and drive.

One of the better 2005 movies on trangender that few saw was "TransAmerica", one of the desparate housewives was the star.

We should just trust Bush. I'm sure the guy is a heckuva judge, and God may have told Bush to appoint him. I would much rather just follow Paris Hilton's drunk 15 year old brother, Brittney Spears latest hospital admission, or, hot or not hot celebrities on MSM 24/7 newscasts.

Why is it that so many Republican poo-bahs look like grandmas [Mitch McConnell, Orrin Hatch,Jeff Sessions

What I would like to know is, did he buy the dress, borrow the dress and if so from whom, or did he make the dress, and if he did, does he sew for the public. I wear a large size and could use a good seamstress with an eye for cute. Does anyone know where I can find a pair of size 15, 6" inch heels, and size XXL fishnet hose?

People, do some homework. This judge IS NOT a conservative and this level judge IS NOT by presidential appointment (they are appointed by the circuit). Do some basic homework, because you ARE NOT sounding intelligent. I know this judge personally and he is a very liberal guy and you are heading down the wrong road with this, seriously. Don't kill your own.

OK Anonymous said, 6:25 pm,

I am not disagreeing with you (nor am I particularly interested in continuing what is perhaps a bigoted discussion) and since you seem to know more, please cite your sources.

THANKS in advance

WHy no mugshot postded?

LOL....but we also notice that nowhere on this blog is Carl Stanley McGee mentioned.

Probably because the people here don't want openly-gay Democrat definitions of traditional and monogamous to be shown.

Anonymous at 6:25 is correct--federal bankruptcy court judges are appointed by the federal circuit, not by the president. See attached link: http://www.fjc.gov/history/home.nsf/page/bankruptcy_bdy!OpenDocument&Click=

If he were a Democrat we would surely see his arrest picture in drag. There are so many republicans that tell us what not to do while they are living it up. What we have here folks is a reichwing republican drunk and in drag, nothing more, nothing less.
