Federal Judge Richard Cebull of the District of Montana has reported himself to the Chief Judge of the Ninth Circuit for forwarding an email "joke" about President Obama. While the email is widely and rightly condemned as racist, it is also sexist. The "joke" is primarily directed at President Obama's mother, accusing her of promiscuity, bestiality, as well as interracial sex.
Documents, including Cebull's letters to Judge Kozinski and President Obama, and reporting at the ABA Journal here.
