Adios, Señor Nifong

Hatched by Dafydd

Durham District Attorney Mike Nifong is resigning his office. Do you think it could have anything to do with a desperate attempt to avoid disbarment?

Oh, but listen to Moses explain why he must resign:

Facing the loss of his law license, a tearful Mike Nifong said Friday he will resign as district attorney, more than a year after he obtained rape indictments against three Duke University lacrosse players who were later declared innocent by state prosecutors.

"My community has suffered enough," Nifong said from the witness stand at his ethics trial on allegations that he violated rules of professional conduct in his handling of the case.

Let my people go! (Of course, if Nifong is disbarred, he would pretty much have to resign as DA anyway. You think?)

UPDATE: Hey, how about that? We scooped Power Line, Real Clear Politics, Patterico, Hugh Hewitt -- and even InstaPundit with this breaking news. Heh.

(Forgive my crowing, but it's not often that Big Lizards has a scoop. We're more into tedious, didactic, and colossally boring news analysis than news reporting.)

Dafydd...ignore yore ego. ;-)

Did any of you "scoop" Drudge on this? Best "scoop" that i've seen in years, was the Rewind: Gore Blasts G.H.W. Bush for Ignoring Iraq Terror Ties Rush and YouTube "scoop"...as scoop that occured back in 1992, and forgotten until recently, when it was missed or ignored by most "Right-Wing" blogs.

Hey, i can understand MSM and a blog like Kos ignoring it; however...
