A jury has found Senator Ted Stevens (R-AK) guilty on seven counts for failing to report $250,000 in improper gifts he received from Bill Allen, the disgraced executive of an oil services company. Stevens treated the conviction as if the jury’s verdict like it was just another attack ad in a political season. The senator faces a maximum of 35 years in prison, 5 years for each count.
Wonder if he’ll get to vote this election. He’s not pulling out of the senate race so far.
