Skip to comments.Misconduct charge dropped for judge who donated to Obama campaign

Utah's chief federal judge Tena Campbell will not face punishment for breaking the rules by donating to Barack Obama's presidential campaign.
Because she admitted the error, promised to stop donating to candidates and publicly apologized, she will not face any serious sanction, according to Robert H. Henry, chief justice of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.
Henry dropped a charge of judicial misconduct on Nov. 11, in a dismissal order that doesn't name Campbell, but the series of events it describes matches her case. The order also sheds new light on how she handled the violation once it was made public by The Salt Lake Tribune.
In late October, The Tribune reported that Campbell donated a total of $300 to Obama's campaign in 2007 listing her address as her district court chambers, her job as "lawyer" and her employer as "govtt."
These donations violated the Judicial Code of Conduct's 7th canon, which prohibits judges from participating in political activities, since they are expected to be apolitical.

It’s a Chicago game called “Pay to Play.” It’s all the rage there.
I know, Larry Sinclair had to cough up $200 worth of crack cocaine to get the prostitute Obama to play.
And I want to salute the dumb faction (R)s in this corrupt "Two-Party Cartel" for allowing it. It goes for all of you pubbie voters for voting these same inefficient manipulators, who have no ba!!s to go after the left, back in office each election with the resultant of the same.
The judge could never have been held accountable - she is pardoned by The One (piss be upon him). Forgiveness flows forth from His hands, you know...
From his website:
U. S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit
Nominated by William J. Clinton on February 9, 1994, to a seat vacated by William Judson Holloway, Jr.; Confirmed by the Senate on May 6, 1994, and received commission on May 9, 1994. Served as chief judge, 2008 - present.
Looks like more kissing & making up between the clintonoids and the Obamanations.
Officer, I am truly sorry I robbed the bank this morning. It was a silly mistake, I really meant to withdraw the money from my account. Here’s the money I borrowed. I promise I won’t ever rob a bank again. Have a nice day, officer.
What’s that phrase they always say, oh right... “Ignorance of the law is no excuse”.
Ping to kitties in post #7. Isn’t that kitty on the right beautiful? I would love to pet him; he looks so plush!
Now that the precedent has been set, the next miscreant to come before this woman needs to take the same action. I would hope he or she would walk away free.
Talk about credibility p!ssed into the wind!
I advise all to go before the court each time they are charged and plead that you did not know what you did was against the law.These Judges are Gods in the system’s eyesight. South Carolina’s Chief Justice has had to hit and run accidents and she was reappointed to the bench unanimously. Eventually we will welcome a dictator and they know it.
Well, there you go.
America, you asked for Change...and you got it.
Cute as a bug.
You SAID IT!!!!!
This fed. judge is now on “O’s” short list to become a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals judge (Left coast is so in for those in the IN).
nice do... she needs a make-over... time for a little Opra... give it up for the judge.
I’m just shocked that a Clinton appointee wouldn’t know the rules of her office. /sarc off
