This guy is a disgrace, he is so far up the political ladder he thinks he is above the law.http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/06/opinion/06thu3.html
Call it misplaced loyalty or misplaced partisanship, but Senator Ted Stevens, a Republican of Alaska, is holding a razor-thin edge with voters despite his conviction last month on seven felony counts of violating federal ethics laws.
After being pronounced guilty by a jury, Mr. Stevens went around telling Alaskans that he had “not been convicted of anything yet” — a fatuous distortion rooted in the technicality that he has not yet been sentenced.
That didn’t wash with his party’s presidential nominee, Senator John McCain, who called on Mr. Stevens to resign forthwith. And it shouldn’t wash with the rest of the Senate.
Most of you may remember this crook as one of those whom the media mafia where "donating" to heavily, lets hope all the other criminals are brought to book for their anti American activities.
