A temporary judge in Nevada was booted from the bench thanks to what some colleagues found on his MySpace site.
The Web site, to which MacArthur has since restricted access, not only included a comment that was hostile to prosecutors but also included "a graphic phrase that he said was common 'among blacks, people who associate with blacks or in a sports context,' " reports the Associated Press.
“He has displayed a bias against prosecutors. Therefore, I do not feel the state of Nevada would get a fair shake by him,” said District Attorney David Roger.
MySpace continues to enjoy this role of housing marginal and offensive discussion. One wonders how the Facebook/class contrast played out in this exchange - how many felt secure in their Facebook accounts, or saw part of the problem being MacArthur using MySpace.
