Governor Easley says he would remove Durham D-A Mike Nifong from office immediately if he could.
Easley says he plans to sign a bill moving through the General assembly that would give the governor power to remove a district
attorney from office.
He says if the bill is signed into law before July 13th -- the day Nifong plans to leave office -- then Easley would use his new power.
Easley also says that he would have never appointed Nifong to be
D-A in Durham County if he had known the veteran prosecutor would
run for offfice in 2006.
