He also solicited sex and agreed to accept a bribe of engaging in sexual activity with women. These acts were all committed in exchange for his influence and exercise of discretion in his official capacity as an elected judge. Our society’s idols are dropping like flies… into a muck of their own creation. We just may need a new standard for judging the goodness of people. The existing criteria of education and stature are insufficient. Any mocking of Billy, Timmy, Baracky, and their kind, implicit or otherwise, was intentional, but well meaning. Open your minds and stray from your ivory towers, so that you will not forever be lost in limbo. Too many people have lost themselves in the ignorance of infatuation with their own superiority. So much for mortal gods; they all fall down, one by one.
