Another one here and another one there, another one bites the dust…posted by Bill Arnett @ 1:03 PM Permalink …referring, of course, to Alaskan titan of frigid politics Senator Ted Stevens, about whom McClatchy, via the Huffington Post, reports:
Sen. Ted Stevens, the longest-serving Republican in the U.S. Senate and one of the chamber's most powerful members, was indicted Tuesday in Washington, a result of a year-long investigation into corruption in Alaska politics.I'm pretty sure that home in Girdwood is the one that Stevens had lifted from the ground, completely and literally, and allowed a crony contractor to build Stevens an entirely new first floor to the home, then setting the original first floor on top for an instant two-story home.
The indictment comes nearly one year after federal agents raided Stevens' home in Girdwood, a resort town about 40 miles south of Anchorage.
What a deal!
There is still no official word on whether or not Stevens sought to have a bridge built to the second floor.
