(CNN) -- A Montana judge seeking re-election next year is facing calls to step down immediately after handing down a 30-day sentence to a teacher who admitted raping a 14-year-old student.
Petitions calling for Baugh's resignation flooded the Internet this week after he passed up a chance to impose a tough sentence on Stacey Dean Rambold, a former high school teacher.
The teen, who was 14 when Rambold had a sexual relationship with her in 2008, committed suicide in 2010, as the case made its way through the courts.
After her death, prosecutors offered to dismiss the charges if Rambold admitted to one charge of rape, completed a sex offender treatment program and met other requirements.

Prosecutors asked for a 20-year sentence with 10 years suspended, court documents show. But the judge followed the recommendation of the defense, which called for a sentence of 15 years, with all but 30 days suspended.
The mother of the teen, Auliea Hanlon, called the short sentence for Rambold a "travesty."
Hanlon said she was particularly upset that Baugh said her daughter "seemed older than her chronological age" and was "as much in control of the situation" as the teacher.
Baugh apologized on Wednesday.
"I made some references to the victim's age and control," he told KTVQ. "I'm not sure just what I was attempting to say at that point, but it didn't come out correct. What I said was demeaning to all women, not what I believe in and irrelevant to the sentencing."
About the sentencing itself, Baugh said he would file an addendum to the case file to "better explain" his rationale.

Well Jumpn' Joe?

JOE BIDEN:  Ladies and Gentlemen, I drafted an outline of what I think the Constitutional limits have on the war clause. I went to five leading scholars, constitutional scholars, and they drafted a treatise for me that’s being distributed to every senator. And I want to make it clear, and I made it clear to the president, that if he takes this nation to war…without congressional approval, I will make it my business to impeach him. And that’s a fact!

Has anyone seen Irish?

SUDLERSVILLE, Md. — A freak accident in the skies over Maryland’s Eastern Shore. A military plane drops a “practice” bomb into a Queen Anne’s County parking lot, narrowly missing cars and people.
The National Guard now admits—it could have been a disaster.
Monique Griego has the eyewitness accounts.
The practice bomb was part of a training exercise. But when it fell from the sky, patrons had no idea what it was or where it came from.
A run of the mill Thursday night at Darlene’s Tavern in Sudlersville—interrupted by a sudden impact
“It is crazy. I never would have thought this,” said Lena Hartlove, co-owner.
Just after 9 p.m., surveillance video shows stunned patrons looking on as gray smoke billows from the parking lot.
“There was debris all over everybody’s vehicles and everything,” said Hartlove.
“We seen the big hole. And it was about two and a half feet deep and about two foot wide,” co-owner Darlene Hurley said.
Owner Darlene Hurley called police. Soon, the bomb squad was digging and she couldn’t believe what they found.
“They dug it they came to end of the bomb… the four little prongs,” she said.
That’s right—a bomb. But the Maryland National Guard soon confirmed it was a fake one.
“There was nothing on it that was explosive. It had metal fins. That’s pretty much it,” said Lt. Col. Charles S. Kohler, Md. National Guard.
The hole the bomb made has already been covered up. But according to military leaders, before it crash landed in the parking lot, it was on a jet on its way back from a training exercise out of Air National Guard base in Middle River.
“This was a night-time mission where they were dropping ordnances on a range. And unfortunately, this incident occurred,” said Kohler
“I was just thanking God it wasn’t closer to the bar because there were people sitting up at the picnic tables when this happened,” Hartlove said.
But with the danger gone, the bomb is still the buzz around the small town.
“The bomb squad told us we should rename the bar the ‘Bulls-eye.’ It’s just non-stop,” said Hurley.
Military leaders say the pilots involved in the training exercise were extremely experienced,. And once they realized there may have been a malfunction, they avoided any densely populated areas.
The National Guard also says it’s still investigating what happened, but a mechanical malfunction may be to blame.
