Turtleboy Daily News made national headlines this week when we were the first to report on the BYU-Duke fake crime hoax. But one thing that hasn’t been reported is that the woman who started this whole affair has previously made headlines for falsely accusing a judge of sending a racist email, only to find out that she had been duped.
A black defense attorney who wanted a Tarrant County district judge taken off her cases for being “racist,” withdrew her motion for recusal Thursday. The move came after nearly a full day’s worth of testimony in Dallas, where a state district judge heard evidence to decide whether Tarrant County State District Judge Elizabeth Berry should be recused from hearing defense attorney Lesa Pamplin’s cases. Berry was accused of sending a racist e-mail to her court reporter in which she called another court reporter a racial epithet. In testimony Thursday, everyone agreed that the e-mail was a fake, it did not come from Berry’s computer, and she didn’t have anything to do with the document. After hearing the result of the Tarrant County district attorney’s office investigation, Pamplin agreed that the allegations against Berry were not true.
“As an African-American attorney, I had a duty to my clients to make sure that it is not true. … The e-mail is a fake, and I would like to withdraw my motion to recuse,” Pamplin told the court.
Lesa Pamplin is the godmother of Rachel Richardson, and is currently running for a judgeship in Tarrant County. She was the one who first reported that her goddaughter was called racial slurs by BYU volleyball fans throughout the entire of their game with Duke.
Oh look, bootleg Gustavo Fring has a history of falsely accusing innocent people of being racist based on easily provable lies because she’s too dumb or naive to ask logical questions. Nevertheless, she had a duty “as an African-American attorney” to smear an innocent judge as a racist, rather than investigating for herself and deciding whether or not it was true. Almost like it’s a pattern for this woman.
I’ll tell you who is racist though – Lesa Pamplin. Unlike Judge Berry’s emails, these tweets are all real.
No wonder she’s made her Twitter account private. Hopefully the good people of Fort Worth reject her in November. Worst case scenario she’s a liar who colluded with her goddaughter to smear BYU as racist. Best case scenario she’s a gullible idiot with a pattern of being easily deceived. Either way, the first quality every judge should have is good judgment, which she clearly lacks. If she’s this easily fooled all the time then think of the kind of people who will be set free or imprisoned if the right lawyer lies in her courtroom.
