Since late June, Bradlee Dean has owed Rachel Maddow and the now-defunct Minnesota Independent $24,625 in legal fees stemming from a ridiculous defamation lawsuit he failed against them.

In the meantime, America's most notorious gay-unfriendly tracksuit-wearing preacher has found himself in hot water with the IRS thanks to his deceptive fundraising practices, and he's also found time to make fun of Maddow's looks on Facebook. But now, the joke is on Dean, as Monday a D.C. judge ordered Dean and his legally troubled representation to cough up the $25k by next week.

From Ken Avidor's Bradlee Dean Info blog:

It isn't clear what consequences await Dean if he doesn't pay up by next Tuesday, but we have a suggestion for Judge Zeldon -- make him get a Maddow-style haircut from the most flamboyant stylist in Minneapolis. Now that'd be poetic justice.
