NC DA's Call on Nifong to Step Down from Case

The North Carolina Conference of District Attorneys has called on District Attorney Mike Nifong to recuse himself from the Duke lacrosse case.

Meanwhile the Washington Post today called on Nifong to drop all charges.

This has been too long in coming, given the state of the "evidence" in the case, but Nifong colluding with the lab to suppress exculpatory DNA evidence may have been the straw which broke the camel's back. Hopefully Nifong will be off the case -- and even better, out of a job -- before too much more time has passed.

As Ed Morrissey wrote yesterday: "...we only know about this one case, and that's because of the high profile of the defendants. Think about what Nifong may have done that flew under the national or even regional media's radar."
