What comes around, goes around

U.S. District Judge Samuel Kent made history on Thursday as he became the first federal judge to be indicted for a federal sex crime. What began as a claim of sexual harassment by former case manager, Cathy McBroom, mushroomed as attorneys from the Department of Justice's Public Integrity Section completed their investigation.

Judge Kent will surrender on Wednesday for his initial court appearance.

It seems that Judge Kent, who decorated his opinions with sarcasm and contempt, forgot the first rule of this dog-eat-dog world: always be nice to the people on whom you step on the way up as it makes the trip back down a little more pleasant.
