    Hard to second-guess this without knowing the facts, which we are told we cannot know due to the possibility of prejudice. But Donovan has always been a DA of towering integrity and never one to engage in conduct to save himself personal embarassment (hey, he ran for AG). So I'll go with Donovan on this one, not that anyone gives a crap judging from the number of comments.
