Ted Stevens’ Career Goes Down “A Series of Tubes”

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.
