Oh Puh-leeze! Mike Nifong's attorneys expect us to believe that while Nifong broke the rules, he didn't mean to break the rules.
Right. How many defendants did that work for in the cases Nifong prosecuted? Right, just what I thought.
The Charlotte Observer has the story and it carries probably the funniest quote from an attorney I think I've ever heard or read:
A lot of people have been rushing to judgment on both the underlying case and this case," attorney Dudley Witt said. "And after you allow someone to have a full hearing, I think you will find that he didn't do anything wrong."
OK, Dudley. Answer me this - who was the very first person to rush to judgment in the underlying case? Come on Dudley. You can do it bud. I'll give you a hint. He spoke to the media OFTEN. OK, we'll let you think on that one.
Seriously, now, after trying the Duke case in the media, Nifong wants people to give him a full hearing before passing judgment on him? Well, if that don't beat all.
I know we don't usually discuss this, but reading this was just too much.
