Montgomery County Judicial Center in Independence, Kansas
A Kansas judicial panel will decide next week if a foul-mouthed judge accused of bigotry and sexism should be barred from the bench.
The Kansas Commission on Judicial Conduct will weigh whether Montgomery County Judge F. William Cullins is competent to continue with his duties.
Cullins lacks patience and decorum, curses at courthouse employees, and disrespects attorneys and bondsmen, a recently-filed anonymous complaint alleged.
The profane tirades happen so often that a trial clerk kept a “swear journal” filled with entries from the out-of-order judge.
He’s also accused of using sexist language against women and racial bias, allegedly referring to an out-of-state black athlete as “not even a Kansas boy” and black male resident as “a Kansas boy.”
Cullins has acknowledged that he curses frequently and “bitches at people to try to get them to correct their ways” and that he needs “a more effective management style.”
