Ashley Madison customers revealed: Chris McInytre, district judge in Calhoun County, AL, appears as paying customer at extramarital-affairs Web site

A judge in Calhoun County, AL, appears as a paying customer at the Ashley Madison extramarital-affairs Web site, according to publicly available records.

Christopher M. McIntyre, a Republican, has been a district judge in Calhoun County since 2013. McIntyre beat incumbent Mannon G. Bankson in the 2012 GOP primary and will be up for re-election in 2018. Bankson had been appointed by Gov. Robert Bentley in 2012.

Before joining the court, McIntyre served as city prosecutor in Jacksonville and worked as an assistant district attorney under the former district attorney, Joe Hubbard. Anniston is the county seat of Calhoun County.

McIntyre earned his bachelor's degree from UAB and his law degree from Cumberland School of Law at Samford University.

District judges in Alabama handle misdemeanors, but they also make rulings on preliminary hearings and other early proceedings in felony cases. In 2013, McIntyre dismissed one of two charges against a mother whose 4-month-old son died from heat exposure after being left unattended in a motor vehicle. The charge of leaving the child in a vehicle was dismissed, but the mother remained charged with manslaughter.

In a 2015 case, McIntyre ordered jail time for a man who was given a second chance to properly care for his dog, only to have the animal die after being returned to his care.

In a 2014 case, a man pled guilty before McIntyre after video showed him using his truck to lunge at bicyclists on the highway. The man was caught on video saying, ""Ought to run him in the ditch, what I should've done, should've put him in the ditch! God, I hate bicycles!"

Based on public records available to us, McIntyre's current marital status is not clear. A brief 2013 newspaper article indicated he was married to Ashley McIntyre at that time.

McIntyre seems to be a pillar-of-the-community type, and he sounds like a competent and reasonable judge -- especially for a Republican. So why was he stupid enough to engage with a sleazy outfit like Ashley Madison?

We sought to pose that and other questions, but McIntyre had not responded to our requests for comment.

Finally, we nail on judge on the AM list. He can't be the only one on there.

**laughs mightily at the lack of self-awareness from this blog operator**

**remembers his own family tried to have him committed**

**nods knowingly**

Wow, that's clever, @1:47. So clever I have no idea what you are talking about. I doubt anyone else does either.

But at least, you can admire your cleverness . . .

"nods knowingly"

Lemme guess: This guy ran on a family-values platform?

Now, we just need a federal judge.

Methinks (yes, I like to create new words) that the power elite in every county-city-state is part of a secret cult that initiates people onto the path of power by exploiting human weakness including the sex drive. Well balanced

I suspect, Ashley Madison was created by local puppet masters (Ex Military-Cops-GOP) as a public platform to facilitate and normalize adultery-sex so that extortionate evidence is readily available to keep players in line. I might be biased, looks like a shadow Gov intel operation where "compromise" is the key to success. Do you want to promote a puppet stooge, unless you have the strings (evidence) to pull on?

This leads to other talk of the occult influence in society that is well hidden.

Occult rituals and groups like pagans and wiccan......seems to always lead to sex, orgies, and bizarre demonic influence: see Kubrick's "Eyes Wide Shut" showing you a typical sex ritual celebration usually associated with Luciferian promotion of "radical id dominated" behavior.

It's a very strange world once you scratch the surface of the thin veneer of respectability that Republicans-Conservatives-Ex Military-Law Enforcement (Authoritarian Personality) depend upon as social camouflage.

I'm sure the judge was just looking for some briefs that would help him impose a stiff sentence.

Congrats, @4:07, you just made me LOL. The Schnauzer appreciates high-quality bathroom-wall humor -- and yours is top notch.

Good story Snauz, but I miss some really good pics of the member and family. Like they say, " A picture is worth a thousand words " That quote may not be music to a true journalist ears, but I always enjoy looking at the pictures of past and current members and their families and really wondering what on went on behind those "smiles" We gotta preacher in Montgomery that's on the list.
