Judge Regrets "Blackface" Halloween Costume
Chillicothe (Adam Slinger) -- A Ross County judge said he regrets his "blackface" costume after a photo surfaced of the elected official at a neighbor's Halloween party.
"That was a foolish mistake I made," said Scott Nusbaum, a Common Pleas Court Judge.
It's unclear who, if anyone, Nusbaum was impersonating with his costume.
In the photo, the judge appears to have black makeup smeared across his face while wearing a pink dress and a whig.
ABC6/FOX28 briefly spoke with the judge outside his home on Thursday night, but he did not want to discuss the incident in detail.
