Blackfaced Judge Ends Up Redfaced

Judge Timothy Ellender of Louisana's Terrebonne Parish, just southwest of New Orleans, ran into trouble last Halloween. He went to a private party with blackface makeup, an afro wig and bound in shackles.

His wife was dressed as a police officer.

Not everyone was amused with the Judge's costume, and some called for an apology (scroll down to the bottom - they've had a lot a judicial problems in the South lately).

Judge Ellender could be suspended for a year without pay, which is the recommendation of the Judiciary Commission of Louisiana.

At least he wasn't wearing a robe.
