And William Jefferson (D-LA) will be re-elected in spite of his flagrant use of bribe money...the usual double standard.

Federal Prison is not like a bunch of trucks but rather a series of tubes.

I remember him threatening to resign his Senate seat over the “bridge to nowhere” pork project. Maybe he should have at the time.

Why?? Palin has been doing a great job of cleaning up the corruption of some in alaska’s GOP including running against incumbents, including supporting her Lt. Gov to run against less than pure as Alaskan snow Don Young

Who is the best primary opponent against him? Anyone that donates to GOP organizations needs to send some to the best candidate there. Money goes a long way in Alaska. One of the few donations I made was to Sean Parnell. Parnell is running against Don Young, a Stevens clone.

ABC radio news is reporting on this now. Charges are about ‘mis-statements’...not ‘corruption’ according to the report.

Let’s wait to see if the news is true. I don’t think Fox is breaking it. It probably initiated with a wire. Let’s wait for the news conference before crucifying a GOP Senator.

If it were not for all those Internet Tubes we would have not known about Ted’s indictment.

Hooray! We knew this time was coming eventually. Hopefully he takes his fellow disgrace Don Young with him. Clean the GOP out of these crooks. To hell with what the Dems do. Those two rotten apples have been causing the whole barrel to stink for a while now.

Yeah, just heard that. What it sounded like, through my “MSM -> truth” filter is “perjury trap.”

No mention of affiliation either.

Good. Stevens was a blight on the GOP, the way he acted and demanded pork as if it was his birthright!!

The only downside being the national reporting media’s sure-to-come deluge of “Republican corruption” stories....

McCain had better not try this baloney of ‘can’t comment.... innocent until convicted...’ — because he will only portray himself as being part of the good ol boy network...

Stevens has not been an ethical man for a long time...

If he’s guilty, then here’s hoping he gets what he deserves. If he’s not, then here’s hoping his accusers do.

One of the differences between conservatives and liberals is how we treat those among us that abuse their power, commit crimes, obstruct justice, or are simply general degenerates. We run ours out on a rail ... they re-elect theirs.
