We’re fascinated by Attorney General Cooper’s, eh hem, ethics after donning paladin’s armor in the wake of the Duke Lacrosse case:
>He gave CBS’s "60 Minutes" an exclusive interview.
>He then accepted tickets to a sumptuous social gala — the Correspondent’s Association annual dinner — hob-knobbing with the likes of Katie Couric and Terri Hatcher.
We’re assured of his ethical uprightness in that he "declined to accept any gift bags" at the event. (Hat tip: Under the Dome.)
