U.S. Judge James Singleton Jr.: Alaska’s 2017 Double Billing Porker of the Year Winner

 

The state of Alaska provided James Keith Singleton Jr. with a law license in 1964 after he graduated from the University of California Berkeley Law School.

 

Former President George H.W. Bush was duped into nominating Jimmy for a seat as a District Court judge for the District of Alaska in January 1990. Freddy wasn’t nominated because he was the most qualified attorney in Alaska. He got it because he had proven to be a reliable lackey for the local and state political hacks.

 

Jimmy has had his significant snout firmly implanted in the public trough for the past forty-eight years (ca. 1970 thru 2018). Apparently, no self-respecting law firm was about to offer Jimmy a good paying job over the past 48 years.

 

It should be noted that in January 2005 Jimmy opted to assume the position of senior status judge. This meant that he was only required to work 10 hours a week while collecting 100% of a full-time judge’s annual salary, which as of 2018 would be $205,100.

 

In addition to his annual $205,100 salary, Jimmy also collects an annual judicial pension from Arizona of approximately $129,000 and a supplemental annuity plan of $15,500 for a total of $349,600.

 

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 Anchorage, Alaska.
