Judge Richard Postma of Anchorage; certified nutcase, screwball, loser
Several years ago, then Gov. Sarah Palin had the chutzpah to appoint Richard Postma to sit as a District Court judge in Anchorage. Obviously, Palin’s decision had nothing to do with seeking the most qualified candidate as you’ll see from the facts set forth below.
The vast majority of Judge Postma’s peers on the bench, court staff and attorneys have aired numerous complaints about his screwball conduct.
Recently the Alaska Judicial Commission filed an ethics complaint against Judge Postma accusing him of engaging in abusive communications by e-mail and in person. The commission also stated that Postma obviously suffered from mental health problems. Put simply, he was nuts!
The commission went on to say that Postma’s tone was confrontational and the conspiracy theories he expressed toward other judges and court staff was quite disturbing. Only further proved he was nuts, right?
In a lame effort at levity, Judge Postma argued that the mental health problems resulted from an anxiety attack he suffered from the stress of defending himself against misconduct charges. Can it be disputed that Judge Postma missed his calling as a standup comedian?
The commission finally stated that the hundreds of pages of documents and e-mails it reviewed and the hours of interviews with staff and Postma proved that he is unfit to continue as a judge. Loser!
Being the nutcase and loser he is, Postma had the audacity to sue the Judicial Council, court staff and others claiming he was wrongfully removed from office by the voters. This guy never stops proving he’s a certified nutcase, right?
Apparently, Judge Postma’s application for a greeter position at the Wal-Mart store at 8900 Old Seward Highway didn’t bear any fruit. I’d suggest that Postma enroll at the Bar Stars bartending school located 5430 B Street in Anchorage.
