What? Can this be? A politician indicted? This guy's just doing exactly what the public expects politicians to do. Dirty politicians are a dime a dozen - find me a law-abiding, ethical one.... now that would be quite a news story!

ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Agents from the FBI and Internal Revenue Service on Monday searched the home of U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens, an official said.
Investigators arrived at the Republican senator's home in Girdwood shortly before 2:30 p.m. Alaska time, said Dave Heller, FBI assistant special agent.
Heller said he could not comment on the nature of the investigation.
The Justice Department has been looking into the seven-term senator's relationship with a wealthy contractor as part of a public corruption investigation. http://www.breitbart.com/article.php...

FBI searches Sen. Stevens' Alaska home
Federal law enforcement agents raided U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens Alaska home in Girdwood on Monday, hauling off undisclosed items from inside and taking extensive pictures and video. Officials wouldnt say what they were looking for or what they found.
All I can say is that agents from the FBI and IRS are currently conducting a search at that residence, Dave Heller, the assistant special agent in charge of the FBIs Anchorage office, said Monday.
Neighbors said agents showed up between 11 a.m. and noon, and a commercial locksmith was called to open the front door. The agents were still there at 8:30 p.m. Stevens, 83, has long been the most powerful political figure in Alaska, and a major force in Congress. A swarm of federal agents serving a search warrant at his home is unprecedented in Alaska politics, and represents the latest chapter in the corruption investigation that burst into view last August when agents raided the offices of state legislators, the oil field services company Veco and others.
