Judge Kent Resigns On Eve of Impeachment Hearing — Effective One Year From Now

Judge Kent-thumb-100x140With hearings scheduled for House Judiciary Committee Task Force on Impeachment, U.S. District Judge Samuel B. Kent has decided to turn in this resignation to President Barack Obama. His lawyer Dick DeGuerin says that the hearings are now unnecessary and Judge Kent will not participate. However, his resignation will reportedly only be effective June 1, 2010.”

The date is designed to milk the system of as much benefits as possible — only to resign shortly before any completion of impeachment.

Absent a voluntary resignation or impeachment, Kent can continue to receive his judicial salary of $174,000 a year plus benefits. To engage in such open pilfering of the public fisc adds yet another ignoble fact to Kent’s disgraceful end to his judicial career.

DeGuerin insisted that Kent wanted to avoid a “spectacle” and had decided “to try to save the embarrassment that these useless hearings would have. That’s embarrassing for the judicial system as well as everybody involved.” Hmmm, and milking the system to the very last minute is testament to the judicial system? Of course, since Judge Kent is himself the spectacle, the best way to avoid the embarrassment is for him to resign immediately and go off to jail.

Kent was sentenced on May 11 to 33 months in federal prison after pleading guilty to obstruction of justice for lying to a judicial inquiry. He was charged with sexually harassing a court employee.

  1. How long would an impeachment hearing and vote take if the judge has already been convicted of a crime and received a prison sentence? Couple of hours, including potty breaks?

  2. 4000 potential US soldiers were murdered by terrorists under Bush’s watch while he read My Pet Goat.

  3. Hey anonymously, how many American soldiers were assassinated on our own homeland by Islamic terrorists under BUSH?

    FUNNY HOW DR TILLER’S MURDER MADE 1,000 TIMES MORE PRESS AND CONCERN FROM THE LEFT THAN THE ASSASSINATION OF A UNITED STATES SOLDIER ON OUR OWN LAND BY A MUSLIM JIHADIST.

    IS THIS THE NEW PLAN TO WIN THE WAR ON TERROR? THE OBAMA FBI (WHO KNEW THIS TERRORIST HAD BEEN TRAINED IN YEMEN AND WAS IN OUR COUNTRY) WAITS FOR US SOLDIERS TO GET ASSASSINATED BY THE TERRORISTS THEN GOES OUT AND ARRESTS THEM?

    Is this your ideal of Justice Carl? But you know you are an ass.

  5. Let me count this. The time that he is in office will affect the amount that he is entitled to draw from his Lifetime Pension. Would the time frame have anything to do with the timing. Also, does not the Federal Government get to yank his “Entitledment” not entitlement while they are playing host? I am sure he will be playing Hostess and get more than a few Twinkies and Ding-Dongs deals while he is in sing sing.

  7. Soldier murdered in Arkansas by Muslim convert & opponent of military

    June 1, 2009

    A gunman with a rifle targeted a military recruitment office today in Little Rock, Arkansas, killing one of the recruiters and wounded another.

    Police Lt. Terry Hastings said the recruiter was shot when a man in a black SUV opened fire on the office in west Little Rock at about 10:30 a.m.

    Update: More here from KATV:

    Authorities say the incident occurred around 10:00 a.m. at a U.S. Army Navy Career Center inside the Ashley Square Shopping Center at 9112 North Rodney Parham Road. According to Lt. Terry Hastings with the Little Rock Police Department, two enlisted soldiers standing outside the office were hit when the suspect drove up and began shooting.

    Police have identified the shooter as Carlos Bledsoe. A Muslim convert who said he was opposed to the U.S. military.

  8. “Lawmakers’ mounting impeachment proceedings were taking advantage of a man who has been totally destroyed.” Dick DeGuerin. Atta boy Dicky D., it takes nerve to stick it to all three simultaneously.
    A. The Constitution
    B. The House Judiciary Committee
    C. We the people.

    Canons of Judicial Ethics:

    The Public Interest
    Courts exist to promote justice, and thus to serve the public interest….

    Avoidance of Impropriety
    A judge’s official conduct should be free from impropriety and the appearance of impropriety; he should avoid infractions of law; and his personal behavior, not only upon the Bench and in the performance of judicial duties, but also in his every day life, should be beyond reproach.

    BTW what’s up with the Bureau of Prisons? Serve Sam Kent his notice of a date to surrender. Convicted, no where near totally destroyed, (his own actions) lecherous maroon.

  9. Yippie, Skippy. Off to Blanket Party Central. Now he will know what a Penal Institution really feels like. Would you like lubrication with that sir, well lube it then.

  10. can’t really blame him. his reputation is already in the toilet, and i’m sure judges aren’t treated real well in prison, so might as well get some good benefits while you can. My friend is in fed pen and says dental care is nonexistent, so maybe he can get some of that. I don’t expect obama to make any move on this, he seems to be fine to leave corruption alone.
