*Bill Cosby  is speaking out regarding the sexual assault charge filed against him today in Pennsylvania.

He thinks he’s the victim of a district attorney trying to make a name for himself in a meritless case, reports TMZ.

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.

The bottom line: Cosby’s legal team says they plan to mount a “vigorous defense against this unjustified charge.”
