The prosecutor in the so-called Duke rape case has resigned:
Durham County district attorney Michael B. Nifong said today he plans to resign his job, after admitting that he had â€œcrossed the lineâ€ of ethical standards in some of the public statements he made about the Duke University lacrosse players he charged with rape.
Whereas withholding evidence favorable to the defense was just an “oopsy,” and trusting a witness who changed her story more times than a whore (I repeat myself) changes panties in one night was “mere oversight.”*
* Not that I think prostitution should be illegal; far from it. I don’t shop at K-Mart either, but I’m not out to shut them down.
