Can a judge be a judge after sex photos?
The question being debated at the moment is whether the judge should step down? We’ve seen any number of famous people compromised by sexual pictures or videos being posted on the internet – some by accident and some in an attempt to seek attention. Chances are the judge was not looking for attention but now she’s getting it by the barrel-full.
I have to admit that in this day and age, I can’t understand anyone allowing their picture to be taken in such a compromising scene, but I also can’t understand how someone can eat suicide hot sauce. My question is whether judges and other senior public officials are held to a higher moral standard than the rest of us mere mortals? Should the judge be forced off the bench or is what she chooses to do in her bedroom with her husband any of our business?
"If pictures of you naked end up on an internet site, it's quite difficult to say you have the credibility to be a judge," said Sébastien Grammond, dean of civil law at the University of Ottawa.
