Bill Cosby says he's the victim of a district attorney trying to make a name for himself in a meritless case.
Cosby's attorneys are indignant, making it clear their client was the centerpiece of a hotly contested election for D.A. in Montgomery County, PA.
It's interesting ... Kevin Steele, who went before reporters Wednesday to announce the sexual assault charge is not even the D.A. yet ... he takes office Friday, and he ran on a platform of prosecuting Cosby.
Cosby's legal team says they plan to mount a "vigorous defense against this unjustified charge."
