Poor Ted, going down the "tubes".

Ted Stevens is a perfect example of our dysfunctional government. He had a huge say in matters relating to the Internet, and yet didn't have a clue about how it works.

FBI, IRS Search Home of Sen. Ted Stevens

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
http://tinyurl.com/38zjpk 7/31/2007
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 wouldn’t 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 FBI’s 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.

It ain't the Bridge To Nowhere anymore.

Now Ted Stevens is on the Bridge To The Slammer.

About time this specimen was indicted. He's had his gigantic snout in the taxpayer trough for too many years.

I swear no one can quite match the stealing, lying and cheating skills of republican politicians.

Oh wait! Senator Robert Byrd and Congressman William Jefferson, both democrats, can steal, lie and cheat with the best of them.

I guess they're all dishonest pieces of crap - party affiliation nothwithstanding.

Check out West Virginia structures an things named after Byrdie. He has like 100 different pet projects that receive earmarks every year.

Our only hope is he passes away quickly.

At 84, if convicted, he will be given a few years probation and sent home. Guess he will still get his overly big pension too.

LOL! Just being a crook is practically respectable these days. GOP operatives must be breathing a sigh of relief that they don't have to spin another "wide stance" problem.

To some degree, but the holier-than-thou "family values" posturing is mainly a Republican trait.

Exactly. They claim to be law-loving, God-fearing, gay-hating model citizens until you peel back the covers and find a lying, stealing, homosexual.

Republicanism: the philosophy of failure.

So I guess Chris Dodd, getting a sweetheart loan while presiding as chair of the banking committee, and then helping pass a law for us to clean up the housing mess is not "holier than thou"?

If Americans renovate their homes,the liberals will put them in jail-- while hard core criminals get light sentences from liberal courts.

No that's what you claim them to be. It's very easy to attack someone when you set the parameters.
