Sen Ted Stevens

Another reason to vote Democrat next year?

Sen. Ted Stevens urged Alaskans to withhold judgment until legal proceedings are concluded.

Senator Stevens

The longest sitting Senator in U.S. history is a liar, a thief and a Republican.

African American Political Pundit

WaPo is reporting on Agents from the FBI and the Internal Revenue Service who raided the Alaska home of Sen. Ted Stevens (R) yesterday as part of a broad federal investigation of political corruption in the state that has also swept up his son and one of his closest financial backers, officials said.

WaPo also reports Stevens, the longest-serving Republican senator in history, is under scrutiny from the Justice Department for his ties to an Alaska energy services company, Veco, whose chief executive pleaded guilty in early May to a bribery scheme involving state lawmakers.

Contractors have told a federal grand jury that in 2000, Veco executives oversaw a lavish remodeling of Stevens's house in Girdwood, an exclusive ski resort area 40 miles from Anchorage, according to statements by the contractors.


Crooks and Liars is covering the Senator Ted “Tubes” Stevens story and is reporting on how the grumpy old fart found the IRS and FBI raiding his house. Another Republican ripping the American taxpayer.

Isn't this the guy who wanted to waste hundreds of millions of dollars on a "bridge to nowhere" in Alaska?

Yes that's the guy. It's a shame that he was able to stay in for so long. hopefully new people can run against him, and throw the bum out.
