GOP Judge Has Problem With Porn

A federal judge in California who was appointed to the bench by Ronald Reagan is being investigated for posting pornographic photos and videos on his personal Web site.

Alex Kozinski, chief judge of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, was overseeing a case involving a hard-core pornographer. The judge's own issues with lewd material came to light when he was interviewed by a reporter from the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday evening.

Kozinski asked an ethics panel of the court to initiate an investigation, and the pornographer's case was delayed at least until Monday.

The Los Angeles Times story said Kozinski had posted sexual material on his Web site and then blocked access to it after being interviewed. The site includes scenes of masturbation and bestiality.

Kozinski, known for both is intellectual rigor and outlandish personality, has been mentioned as a possible U.S. Supreme Court candidate. It remains unclear what, if any, discipline the judge could face.
