Duke Lacrosse: Aw, Poor, Poor, Nifong

It is always fun to see a grown liberal cry as he is hoist on his own petard

Durham —In a letter to the North Carolina State Bar, the embattled former prosecutor in the Duke lacrosse case complains about how grassroots groups are trying to run him out of office.

The Dec. 28 letter is an attachment to Mike Nifong's written response filed Wednesday to an ethics complaint filed by the North Carolina State Bar.

In it, Nifong cites one group, Friends of Duke University — a group of alumni, parents and supporters of the school — that takes aim at how he handled the case and has also provided instructions on a blog about how to petition for the DA's removal.

"A well-connected and well-financed (but not, I would suggest, a well-intentioned) group of individuals … have taken it upon themselves to ensure that this case never reaches trial," Nifong writes in the eight-page letter to the State Bar's Grievance Committee.

Man, I'm leaking tears just reading that. Of course, they are tears of laughter, but, tears nonetheless.

You know, God forbid that people actually go and follow their First Amendment Rights to peaceable petition the government for redress.

Hold one second, giggles are coming back.

Is Nifong serious?

Nifong continues in the letter: "If this seems like paranoid delusion to you, perhaps you should check out Web sites… such as (Friends of Duke University)."

But the founding member of the group, University of Maryland law professor and Duke graduate Jason Trumpbour, offers no apologies.

"I think Mike Nifong has to realize he is the author of his own misfortune," Trumpbour said.

Nifong willingly put himself in the public eye by accepting the job as D.A. which was offered by Gov. Easley. Then, he decided to run for election as the D.A. He, as acting D.A., chose to deal with the case in an improper, at best, manner. Looks like he is the big winner of

You think I should drop it off at his office?
