Wow, Judge.

Not a good thing.  I feel badly for him.

Federal judge charged with buying drugs from stripper

A federal judge was granted a $50,000 bond Monday on charges that he purchased drugs on several occasions from an Atlanta club stripper with whom he was having a sexual relationship.

Senior U.S. District Judge Jack T. Camp Jr. was arrested Friday night near Sandy Springs and held in an undisclosed location by the U.S. Marshal Service.

The 67-year-old Camp is accused of purchasing and using cocaine, marijuana, Hydrocodone and Roxycodrone since last spring and using them with an exotic dancer he met at the Goldrush Showbar on Metropolitan Avenure, according to an affidavit by FBI Special Agent Mary Jo Mangrum, a member of a task force investigating public corruption.

Camp met the dancer, an FBI informant identified in the affidavit as CI-1, after he purchased a private dance from her, according to the affidavit.  He returned the next night and purchased another dance and  sex from her, the affidavit said.

Bill Morrison, his lead attorney, declined to discuss the specifics of the case and he portrayed it as a matter a private breach of integrity rather than as a public one by a long-term public official.

“It’s not about Judge Camp being a judge. It is about Judge Camp being a husband and whether he has fulfilled those duties,” Morrison said after the hearing before a visiting U.S. magistrate. “This is not a case about judging. ... It is a case about judgment.”
