One corrupt politician down, 9,999,999 to go!!! DO NOT STOP INVESTIGATING/PROSECUTING THEM POLITICIANS NOW!!!
Politicians seem to die of old age, without ever being charged with the millions of crimes they are guilty of. Ted Kennedy, for example!

HA HA HA...Good !

Murkowski was the worst govenor we have ever had up here, and he is crooked as winding river. Several Alaska polictians have went down this past year for their crooked dealings with VECO and there's going to be a few more getting slammed real soon.=)

It's a little frightening how greedy and stupid these politicians are.

Do they not learn from 2000 years of history that corrupt politicians get caught?

We have laws on the books for increased penalties for certain crimes like killing a police officer for instance. I think we need laws for increased penalties for politicians that violate the public trust whether it be in a public bathroom or oil industry boardroom.

Stevens.... now wasn't that the guy who allowed several oil company executives to "testify" at a Senate hearing without taking the oath to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?

I guess this aid is to Ted Stevens what Scooter Libby was to Dick Cheney.

That republican BUS sure has a lot of bodies under it. May have to buy another bus at this rate.
