Breaking: Nifong Bails Out of Duke Case

The slimeball figured out how to weasel out.

Duke Lacrosse Prosecutor Hands Off Case

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The state attorney general’s office agreed Saturday to take over the sexual assault case against three Duke University lacrosse players at the request of the embattled district attorney.

Durham County District Attorney Mike Nifong, hamstrung by a flip- flopping witness and dogged by allegations that he made inflammatory statements to the media, asked Attorney General Roy Cooper’s office Friday to appoint a special prosecutor.

“I wish I could tell you this case would be resolved quickly,” Cooper said at a news conference Saturday. “Since we have not been involved in the investigation and prosecution, all of the information will be new to our office. Any case with such serious criminal charges will require careful review.”

Typical of this weasel. He makes the mess then gets the AG to bail him out.

Not to say I told you so, but I told you Thursday was the day the case died. When that hit the paper, it was all over.
