In Louisiana, 23rd Judicial District Court Judge Jessie LeBlanc submitted her resignation after an affair with Chief Deputy Bruce Prejean brought disturbing things to light.
When LeBlanc discovered that Prejean was also involved with a Black law clerk, she sent a disgusting text that read: “At least I was NEVER unfaithful to you with ANYONE - much less a n*gger.”
Another text revealed similar hate: “I’m sure you are with thug n*gger Erick [...] Dirty cop. Thug. N*gger.”
The outrage has been deafening.
Calls for her resignation poured in from community members, NAACP activists, and even from state Governor John Bel Edwards. After she initially denied sending the texts, she finally resigned. Still, she refuses to be quiet on her way out.
