U.S. Judge James Kinkeade: Texas’s 2017 Double Dipping Porker of the Year Winner


The state of Texas provided James E. Kinkeade with a law license in 1974 after he graduated from Baylor University Law School.


Former President George W. Bush was duped into nominating Jimmy for a seat as a District Court judge for the Northern District of Texas in July 2002. Jimmy wasn’t nominated because he was the most qualified attorney in the greater Dallas/Ft. Worth area. He got it because he had proven to be a reliable lackey for the local political hacks.


For the past thirty-eight (38) years, Jimmy has had his significant snout firmly implanted in the public trough. Apparently, no self-respecting law firms in the greater Columbus area were about to offer Inge a good paying job.


In addition to his annual $205,100 salary, Jimmy also collects an annual judicial pension from the state of Texas of approximately $72,000 and Texas County pension of about $26,000 for a total of $303,100. In addition, his wife receives an annual state teacher’s pension.


And lastly, if you’re a federal or even a local government employee, wouldn’t you love it if you could take on senior status in your job after 10 years and continue to collect 100% of your pay? Sorry boys and girls!


Even though you’ll never be able to collect this unconscionable financial benefit, you can take solace in the fact that you will be required to continue to pay taxes to support it.


As we speak (ca. March 20180, Jimmy continues to sit as a District Court judge in Dallas, Texas.
