News today of the resignation of the U.S. Attorney in Raleigh, George Holding, has received some national attention because of the connections to the John Edwards case.
One of the national sites goofed in a way we think would bring a few chuckles around here. (And, yes, we all make mistakes.)
The Huffington Post headline:
"Mike Easley Resigning:
John Edwards Investigation Prosecutor
Quitting After Indictment"
The HuffPost also included three photos of Easley, the former North Carolina governor, with its story.
The article itself was an AP version that accurately reported that George Holding is the federal prosecutor who is stepping aside.
Easley, of course, was a target of Holding.
Easley pleaded guilty to a felony in state court as part of plea deal last year that ended the federal probe of his behavior.
