Maybe our DA will follow his example.

Hey Paul, you need to hire this guy. He could take the place of Tim (Jim Jones) Stoen.

Paul's home for wayward prosecutors. Desperate DA seeks new hires, no experience necessary, qualifications or recommendations necessary. Must be willing to trade income for beauty - scratch that, you can rocket to the top of the pay scale, just ask. Interviews take place at the local foo-foo bar. Bring your wetsuit.

Nifong = Stoen ?

Nifong is bad, really really bad - but I can't make that leap. Stoen is the worst. He should have been disbarred permanently long long ago.
