Citing a broad sense of humor

Kozinski has retired.

Alex Kozinski, a high-profile federal court judge in California, is retiring after multiple women accused him of sexual harassment, prompting a formal inquiry.

In a statement on Monday, Mr. Kozinski, 67, said his family and friends had urged him to remain and defend himself, but that doing so would make it difficult to do his job well.

Kind of like the way his “jokes” and overtures made it difficult for his female colleagues and underlings to do their jobs well.

Citing a “broad sense of humor and a candid way of speaking to both male and female law clerks alike,” Mr. Kozinski, who served on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit for 32 years, also offered an apology to his accusers.

“It grieves me to learn that I caused any of my clerks to feel uncomfortable; this was never my intent,” he said. “For this I sincerely apologize.”

Yeah yeah yeah. Lenny Bruce, sexual revolution, freedom, feminists have no sense of humor, women are such a drag; we know. We’ve heard it, many times.

At least 15 women had accused Mr. Kozinski of subjecting them to unwanted sexual comments or physical contact, including kissing, hugging and groping, according to The Washington Post. The allegations spanned decades and included colleagues as well as women who met him at events.

Broad sense of humor! Stupid broads never get the joke.

This is not the first time that Mr. Kozinski has faced accusations of inappropriate behavior.

In 2008, The Los Angeles Times reported that he contributed to a website featuring sexually explicit photos and videos, including a photograph of naked women painted to look like cows.

Broad sense of humor! Stupid cows, they never get the joke.

Mr. Kozinski, a libertarian known for writing colorful opinions, was first appointed to the Ninth Circuit by President Ronald Reagan in 1985.

Colorful! Broad sense of humor! Fun guy!
