A Kiss Is Not Just A Kiss

A former Aiken County Magistrate has been publicly reprimanded by the South Carolina Supreme Court:

At the conclusion of a session of bond court, respondent kissed the clerk who had been working with him on the forehead. Respondent contends that the kiss was a gesture of appreciation for the clerk's hard work and that he in no way intended it to be an amorous gesture. However, respondent recognizes the clerk was offended by the gesture.

The magistrate resigned when the clerk complained to the Chief Magistrate. (Mike Frisch)
