It took Rep. Walter Jones to notice the travesty going on in Rep. David Price’s own district. I refer to the persecution of three lacrosse players by Durham DA Mike Nifong.

In a letter to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, Rep. Walter Jones also asked the Justice Department to review Durham County District Attorney Mike Nifong’s actions for possible prosecutorial misconduct.

“Over the past several months, many of my constituents and a growing number of mainstream media outlets have raised serious questions about the accuser’s allegations and Mr. Nifong’s prosecution,” wrote Jones, R-N.C.
