    To me, that's nearly my best news of the day. "The bridge to nowhere" senator needs to be out, jail sounds like an excellent out.

    Lying to feds isn't a crime. See Libby.

    Not sure... Seems to me that the people of Alaska want to drill, I know the governor does. I bet it will be hard for them to vote for a party who is dead set against it.

    FOXNews.com - Sen. Ted Stevens Indicted, Charged With Making False Statements in Corruption Probe - Politics | Republican Party | Democratic Party | Political Spectrum

    The probe has ensnared more than a half dozen public officials, lobbyists and business leaders.

    Investigators estimate the value of the material provided to Stevens to be $250,000.
    Officials also allege he falsified his disclosure statements between 1999 and 2006, and possibly longer, to cover up his gains.
    VECO's requests included funding and other aid for the oil services company's projects and partnerships in Pakistan and Russia. It also included federal grants from several agencies — as well as help in building a national gas pipeline in Alaska's North Slope Region, according to the indictment filed in U.S. District Court in Washington.


    LET ME SAVE THE NEO CONS FROM HAVING TO RESPOND. I KNOW, IT IS NOT THAT BIG OF A DEAL AND THEY ALL DO IT. WAWAWAWA!!!:eusa_shhh:

    Let me save them some time, too.

    Senator Ted Stevens is obviously a liberal, just like Bush is becoming, now, according to some of the truly most demented neo-cons fruitcakes on this board
