Sad Drag Queen Judge Steps Down
Robert Somma, the poor humiliated Bush-appointed bankruptcy judge who was recently arrested in a cocktail dress, fishnets, and stylish pumps after crashing his Mercedes into a pickup while allegedly drunk, announced this weekend that he would resign from his post.
He held his position on Boston's First Federal Circuit for three wonderful years. Gary Wenta, a circuit executive for the First Circuit, said "He was serving a 14-year appointment. This will leave him without a pension."
The tragically pensionless judge will probably just have to go back to lawyering in order to bring home whatever six-figure pittance he can. On the plus side, private practices tend to have a less stringent dress code.
