Bill Cosby -- D.A. Election Makes Prosecution More Likely

Voters in a Philadelphia suburb have spoken and made Bill Cosby a bigger target for prosecution.

Kevin Steele was just elected District Attorney of Montgomery County, where an investigation has been reopened in connection with claims made by Andrea Constand that Cosby drugged and assaulted her.

Steele was running against Bruce Castor, who served as the D.A. when the case was initially rejected back in 2005. Castor had said Constand's credibility was questionable, and during the campaign Steele blasted Castor for his decision, squarely addressing it in TV campaign ads.

During his victory speech, Steele said, "You made a choice to take it forward, to fight for victims, to fight for people who have been the subject of crimes."
