Nifong resigns

I'm sure most got the headlines yesterday. I was still very surreal to see this (I live in Durham, NC) as the top story on the ABC Evening News with Charlie Gibson last night. As you can imagine, there's a lot of local coverage.

I saw the tears as he confessed that he made mistakes, but I'm not totally buying it. Maybe he's realizing he really screwed up and irreparably damaged many lives? The testimony and tears from Reade Seligmann and his mom were more powerful in my mind as they discussed how things unfolded as he was charged. He really made Nifong to look like one cold-hearted asshole. That testimony is likely what put the nail in the coffin for Nifong. If nothing was intentional and it was all because he made mistakes, I can accept the fact that he's just incompetent. Does he deserve to keep his license? Hell, no!

Then, again, how on earth can he still make a living as a lawyer? His reputation is destroyed. He has no support from anyone. Who would ever trust him again? Oh, yeah, forgot we do have a federal government. :(

Today could be the last day of deliberations and have a decision soon. Glad to see some more closure to this whole fiasco.
