Well, OK. So this is of little local interest, but it’s still interesting:
Ted Stevens, every thinking Progressive’s favourite Republican, has been embroiled in a scandal involving the CEO of a company called “Veco,” who has pleaded guilty to corruption charges and bribing state lawmakers (uh-oh) and is now cooperating with investigators. On Monday, FBI agents raided his home and started taking crap out. This looks kinda bad.
“All I can say is that agents from the FBI and IRS are currently conducting a search at that residence,” Dave Heller, the assistant special agent in charge of the FBI’s Anchorage office, said Monday.
In discussing campaign finance reform and CMCE a while back, I noted that Senator Stephens’ campaign out-raised his competitor by a margin of 3000 to one. Well, I guess we all know where some of that money came from, now don’t we? And I guess the Alaska Senate race (one of them) just got a whole lot more competitive.
