A Chicago judge has been accused of making sexist comments about a New York lawyer who repped Bill Cosby — after reportedly getting caught on a hot mic asking, “Can you imagine waking up next to her every day?”
Cook County Judge William Raines appeared to have thought his court’s live-stream cameras were off when he made disparaging comments about Jennifer Bonjean, WGN News said.
“’Did you see her going nuts, glasses off, fingers through her hair … It’s insane,’” Bonjean recalled hearing the judge ask a prosecutor.
“Can you imagine waking up next to her every day? Oh my God!” the judge said, according to The Chicago Sun-Times, citing transcripts including in a court motion to preserve video of the conversation.
