Howie Carr list ping. Jorge Gomez is not to be confused with Robert Somma, a (now former) Mass. bankruptcy judge who was arrested for a DUI after leaving a bar in Manchester NH. It was noted in some media that Mr. Somma was dressed in female attire at the time.

Wikipedia:
Robert Somma is a former federal judge for the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts Bankruptcy Court. Somma was arrested near Manchester, New Hampshire on February 6, 2007 after he rear-ended a pickup truck. Officers determined that Somma was driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol.

Police reported that Somma fell back against the frame of his Mercedes-Benz as they removed him from the driver's seat. The incident gained national attention when it was revealed that Somma was dressed in drag, consisting of a "black women's cocktail dress, fishnet stockings and high heels". Additionally Somma, who is married to a woman, had "had a difficult time locating his license in his purse". He later admitted that he had been drinking hard liquor at a gay bar before the accident.

Somma pleaded guilty in open court to bargained charges. According to the Associated Press, he agreed to a 12 month suspension of his judicial license in addition to other punishments. Somma then resigned from the court, effective April 1, 2008.

Somma wrote a letter on April 2, 2008 to the Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly stating that he was reconsidering his resignation. This change of heart happened after a letter writing campaign by fellow attorneys. WRKO talk show host Howie Carr responded by launching his own letter writing campaign, aimed at what he termed Somma's "stupendous lack of judgment in the one job where judgment matters most". Carr's goal was to halt any reinstatement of Somma, which would require judicial approval.

I think he might've been expecting that someone would buy him drinks. Hey, the economy's tough.

When nobody would, he started drinking on his own.

It’s a good thing he/she/it got out of a booking photo. It would have definitely ended up on the internet for life.

The sad part is the freak will probably get away with it with no charges. Too bad the bartender didn’t figure out it was a male and let the other customers know it
