NiFong the Coward [J. Mark English]

The District Attorney, Mike Nifong, who spearheaded the investigation Duke lacrosse rape scandal, has asked to bow out of the case all together, and recuse himself:

A source close to the investigation said Nifong sent a letter to North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper asking his office to assume responsibility of the case.Calls to the Attorney General's office and Mike Nifong's office were not yet returned.

Three Duke Lacrosse players, Reade Seligmann, Collin Finnerty, and David Evans were indicted in 2006 on charges of rape, sexual assault, and kidnapping.

The rape charges were dropped in December after the accuser could not recall key details of the alleged attack. - ABC NEWS

I think this guy NiFong is a joke, and should not just recuse himself, but resign his office.
