For what being a crook? Who did he pay off to get the charges dropped?

He didn't pay anyone off - the Justice Department screwed the case up. But then again, the progressive talking heads are treating him guilty until proven innocent - which I remember is the opposite of how we are legally supposed to treat individuals.

If Mr. Holder really thought they had a case still, they would bring him back for a re-trial. Instead, they decided not to based on the interviews and additional information that the prosecution withheld. The legal system worked the way it should, for better or worse. To allow this conviction to be left in place would have left a dangerous precedent in our legal system. Isn't that what we should be happy about? What if it were Blago instead? Would you still be up in arms?

The folks behind this got what they wanted: a Democratic Senator from Alaska. Investigate that.

You are totally correct that this miscarriage of justice was a scam to get a democrat senator. Stevens lost the election by a narrow margin right after his conviction.

Instead of an apology Stevens should be given back his Senate seat, that would be real justice.

If AG Holder thought there was any chance that the Feds could get a conviction they would retry Stevens. The problem is the Feds star witness lied.

So you are actually saying that the Justice Department under Bush worked hard to get a Democrat elected in Alaska? Really? You do understand that Bush had control here right? He was president and had stacked justice with brownnosing lackey Republicans right? And somehow they conspired to get a Democrat elected? How stupid are you?

I suppose California lawmakers ought to call for the State to apologize to OJ.

Ted Stevens is a victim of fascistic Marxist liberal lawyers who will do everything to push the liberal Democrats to power, including false accusations against the GOP Senator and destroying his character.
The system of the Russia Stalinist KGB regime are now used by the power obsessed Democrats to pushed their Marxist totalitarian regime by destroying their opponents by all means including lies and deceit of Democrat attorneys in US courts.
Obama as an Islamic Marxist tyrant who is supported by lying fascistic media of George Soros and the NYT is using the Cuban methods to take out the freedom and liberty of the American people with Brown Shirt youth 'civil army' of his Acorn gangster and Nation of Islam terrorists.
America is sliding down a slippery slope to totalitarian regime of the evil democrat lawyers like in Nazi Germany of the 1930's where show trials by government lawyers used false accusation to defeat the opposition of the Government.

Obama just blew through about a $100 million going around the world bowing down and appologizing to anyone one who'd listen, for being an American.

What's one more stop?

Prosecutor misconduct and a willing media to spin the lies. No investigation into the charges.

Find out what 2 747s (there are always 2), a C-117, and the respective fighter escorts cost per hour. Add to that the helicopters, the secret service, and the military forces in the foriegn countries.

Now add security at all the functions (remember, only He thinks He's loved throughout the world). This means air cover, anti-aircraft protection, troops on the ground, and reaction teams.

Now pile on the loss of commerce that his arrivals and departures cost.

Then add to that, the loss that American companies are going to suffer when their foreign customers and suppliers get to see, first hand, who is running America.

You guys don't understand much, do you? Holder let him off the hook because the "Justice" department screwed up the prosecution. And, oh yes, those prosecutors were Bushies who intentionly blew the case to get him off.

look at it,
