A Couple of Comments

I have to agree with another poster. It's really time to move beyond this and see some focus on important issues like jobs and the economy.

From a crimminal standpoint,it is possible too many years have passed for the placement of charges which the DA will feel have a realistic chance of going to trial succesfully. And never forget, the probability of conviction and costs associated with trial are issues the DA has to consider.

I believe there is a NC provision which would allow the injured to hire a Special Prosecutor to act in bringing crimminal charges.

The DA could, of course, ask the Grand Jury to hear the evidence and decide if further action is merited.

From a civil standpoint, there is a statute of limitations for bringing action for monetary damages. That has long passed.

Unless the Senator is in the mood to make a financial ontribution to the charity of the "injured" party's choice, it is not likely there will be a check written.

As to an apology, face reality. The Senator has not issued an apology in the past 50 years or so. Why would he now for an incident alleged to have taken place 35 years ago?

What other party would apologize?
