New Charges Rap Nifong For Lack of Honesty, Functioning Sense of Irony

I know I've already done the Nifong thing already. Can't resist this though.

Mike Nifong, the embattled prosecutor once at the helm of the Duke lacrosse rape case, revealed little as he appeared in court Wednesday to face serious ethics charges by the North Carolina Bar.

In an exclusive interview with "Good Morning America," though, Nifong's attorney said that his stone-face expression buried the true feelings of a man under siege.

"He's devastated. It's very upsetting to be attacked. … It's like he's public enemy No. 1," said David Freedman, Nifong's attorney.

"Here's a man who's trying to do his job as an elected DA in Durham County. He's always held himself up as an ethical individual. … It's a bit of a surprise."

Duke lacrosse defendant Reade Seligman was quoted as saying, "I hear ya, brother."

He claims that, even knowing what he knows now, he would have still brought the charges:

"He may regret some of the things he may have said," Freedman said. But, Freedman also pointed out, "If many of us had an opportunity to go back and do something over, we might do it differently."

"I don't think he would have changed his mind about the charges," Freedman said.

Um, he already did change his mind. The rape charges have been dropped, because, supposedly, the "victim" -- attempting to explain the utter lack of DNA evidence of a violation after being raped without condoms by 20 a dozen five three two men -- now claims that she, an exotic dancer/likely hooker, can't differentiate between a penis and an object used as a dildo.

One would imagine she could testify as an expert on that point.
