I Know It’s Wrong, But It’s Still Pretty Funny

by Emily Rems


I was intrigued by the CNN.COM headline this afternoon that read "Judge allegedly napped, made bailiff rub her feet."

But when I read on for details of the misconduct allegedly perpetrated by Las Vegas judge Elizabeth Halverson, I kinda started to think she was, well, if not awesome, definitely hilarious. Among the complaints beng leveed against her are accusations that she made her bailiff "put her shoes on her feet, massage her back, cover her with a blanket for naps and make sure her oxygen tank was filled. He says she [also] asked him, ‘Do you want to worship me from near or afar?’"

Ha! Funny right? But that doesn’t even come close to my favorite part of the complaint, the part in which "she allegedly had her husband sworn in so that she could ask him under oath whether he had completed chores at home."

C’mon, you know if YOU were a judge you would sooooooo wanna pull all kinds of shit like that. The difference is, Elizabeth Halverson not only IS a judge, but she actually has the ovaries to DO shit like that! It’s up to you Vegas. Keep the hilarity and hijinx rolling by supporting her bid for re-election!
