Another Republican Indicted

Ted Stevens (R Alaska) Indicted

For failing to disclose gifts.

Most Washinton folks have been expecting this for a long time. It reminds me of what happened to Dan Rostenkowski, it appears that being in a position where the money slushes around is, in and of itself, corrupting.

Stevens has been a legend, along with being one of the longest serving Senators in our history, for his ability to steer government pork into the trough for his constituents.

Thus, it is proven again, the old adage:

If you're robbing Peter to pay Paul, you can always count on Paul's vote.
