Arkansas judge admits to leaking Charlize Theron adoption details, making inappropriate comments

Charlize Theron Adoption - Judge admits to leak

Arkansas judge Mike Maggio confessed to leaking details Charlize Theron was going through the adoption process two months before the Oscar-winner went public with the news.

In addition to revealing Charlize was adopting a black child, the circuit judge made racist, sexist and otherwise prejudiced comments on a Louisiana State University fan message board in early 2012. He posted the comments as “geauxjudge.”

In a post on Monday, Blue Hog Report writer Matt Campbell presented a great deal of information linking Judge Maggio to the LSU comments.

“It quickly became obvious that it was an Arkansas judge: Circuit Judge and Court of Appeals Candidate Mike Maggio,” said the Blue Hog Report writer. “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.”

Below are the comments related to Charlize and two of the many prejudiced statements…

As Blue Hog Report noted, those actions go against several rules for circuit judges.

The judge responded a few days later, saying the theory is correct. He added he takes “full responsibility” and is quitting his campaign for the Arkansas Court of Appeals board.

“I apologize deeply for my lapse in personal judgment and I have no excuse. The comments posted were not acceptable,” said the father-of-five. “These comments are not a reflection of who I am.”

Arkansas’ Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission director David Sachar told Arkansas Times they are investigating Judge Maggio’s conduct.

    Why wasn’t this POS judge released from his duties as soon as it became apparent that he was posting confidential information and or making inappropriate, racial, sexist comments?

    well good for him for not making excuses i guess. it’s the least you can do when you get caught for shit, and so few humans do it. that will help him & others for the consequences he must now face.

    โ€œI apologize deeply for my lapse in personal judgment and I have no excuse. The comments posted were not acceptable,โ€ said the father-of-five. โ€œThese comments are not a reflection of who I am.โ€

    I would say the comments he anonymously posted on the message board are much more a true reflection of who he is than his manufactured official statement.
