A Florida judge is resigning at the ripe age of 66 over insane comments he said to have made while on the bench. Duval Circuit Judge Mark Hulsey III was under investigation for remarks uttered in the courtroom including referring to a female attorney as a “b*tch” and a “c*nt.”

He was also accused of saying Blacks should “get back on a ship and go back to Africa.”

If impeached, Hulsey would have been the first judge in over 40 years to be ousted in such a manner. The resignation may have spared him that embarrassment. On Monday, he sent his walking papers to Gov. Rick Scott by email and hand delivery, writing: “I hereby tender my resignation as a judge of the Circuit Court of the State of Florida, Fourth Judicial Circuit, Group 25, effective this 23rd day of January, 2017 at 10:15 a.m.” He added: “It has been an honor and privilege to serve the people of the state of Florida.”

Despite his comments about Black people, several of his colleagues, including one Black attorney, has come to his defense. “I’ve never seen anything consistent with that type of statement,” Jacksonville lawyer A. Wellington Barlowe told WJXT, a Jacksonville television station. “As a matter of fact, it’s been the very opposite. [Hulsey] has a reputation in the courthouse among just about everybody I can think of — white lawyers, black lawyers, men and women — he has a reputation for being fair to every litigant that comes before him.”

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
