Palin twittered that this was heartbreaking but that isn't how she felt about him in 2008 when she was McCain's running mate and he was charged with things similar to charges she too would face later.

"McCain said that Stevens "has broken his trust with the people" and needed to step down—a call echoed by his running mate, Sarah Palin, governor of Stevens' home state.[89] Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, as well as fellow Republican Senators Norm Coleman, John Sununu and Gordon Smith also called for Stevens to resign. McConnell said there would be "zero tolerance" for a convicted felon serving in the Senate—strongly hinting that he would support Stevens' expulsion from the Senate unless Stevens resigned first"

It was confirmed a few hours ago was one of those who were killed in the crash.

His wife, and the mother of all but his last child, was killed in a crash landing 32 years ago.
