Is Letten the new Nifong?

Is Jim Letten, the U. S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Louisiana the 2010 version of Mike Nifong? You will recall Mike Nifong is the former Durham, NC District Attorney who framed three innocent Duke University Lacrosse players and charged them with raping a local prostitute, Crystal Mangum. Nifong was later disbarred and spent a night in jail.

Extensive information on the Duke Lacrosse Frame can be found at Durham-in-Wonderland and Liestoppers.

So were James O’Keefe, Robert Flanagan, Joseph Basel and Stan Dai “Nifonged” by Letten?

From Fox News:

O’Keefe was “framed” by the media and the U.S. attorney’s office, Andrew Breitbart, publisher of, told Fox News.

“James O’Keefe sat in jail for 28 hours without access to an attorney, while the U.S. attorney leaked the information about his arrest, helping the media frame it as ‘Watergate Junior,'” Breitbart said.

This is the exact modus operandi used by Nifong: blab to the newspapers and TV stations who all lap it up without question. And then try and isolate your intended target from legal counsel. We saw it all in the Duke Lacrosse Frame.

And if anyone here in Louisiana wants first-hand information on what went on at Duke, just ask LSU Athletic Director Joe Alleva. He was in the big fat middle of it.
