When Detroit Judge Wade McCree was confronted by a local news reporter for sending a shirtless text message to his female bailiff, his honor had an interesting response: “I’ve got no shame in my game.”
The 3rd Circuit court judge, who ironically specializes in presiding over sexual misconduct cases, proudly admitted it was his half-naked physique in the message, and said he wasn’t doing anything inappropriate because he’d sent the same message to several women before.
“Hot dog, yep that’s me. I’ve got no shame in my game. I ain’t talking to nobody else’s wife. You can almost get that here and now,” he told a local news affiliate.
By the way, Judge McCree is a married man.
The bailiff’s husband wasn’t so calm about the judge’s racy message. Her husband called it “highly inappropriate” and plans on filing a complaint with the prosecutor and the Judicial Tenure Commission.
Although Michigan doesn’t have any anti-sexting laws on the books, if the bailiff felt uncomfortable with the judge’s message he can be hit with a sexual harassment lawsuit as well as a possible penalty from the judicial ethics committee.
If this fiasco results in Judge McCree losing his position on the bench, then it seems like he might have wished he had a little more shame in his game after all.
