Dellinger for Durham DA

(From NCSPIN) It is widely speculated that Mike Nifong, Durham’s embattled District Attorney who is charged with misconduct by the State Bar, will not survive and will resign as part of a negotiated settlement. We have heard that Hampton Dellinger, former legal counsel to Governor Easley and announced candidate for Lieutenant Governor, is being frequently mentioned as a replacement when Nifong resigns.

Would this mean he wouldn’t run for Lt. Governor?

Hmmn...possibility.

    "...will resign as part of a negotiated settlement..."

    What does he have to negotiate with?

    The bar has already shown us they are seriously looking to make a statement by taking action before the trial concludes and Nifong could/would be responsible for the cost. Doesn't look like they want or need to negotiate.

    Am I missing something here?

    Thanks

  • Negotiating with strength is not much of a possibility....you make a good point.
