    I think this guy will be another casualty of Republican corruption. If we don't get them on family values (Vitter), we can always get them on greed. Another sad day for America. Another sad day for the Republican Party. :(

    Federal law enforcement agents are currently searching the Girdwood home of Alaska U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens, an FBI agent said.

    "All I can say is that agents from the FBI and IRS are currently conducting a search at that residence," said Dave Heller, the assistant special agent in charge of the FBI's Anchorage office. The search began this afternoon, he said. It's the only such search warrant currently being served, he said.

    He directed other questions to the U.S. Justice Department's Public Integrity Section in Washington. A spokesman there had no comment.

    Federal investigators and a grand jury looking into public corruption in Alaska have been asking questions about a 2000 remodeling project at Stevens' home, particularly the involvment of the oil field services firm Veco.

    Isn't he the bridge to nowhere guy? They should throw him in jail for that alone. I'll be curious to see what they find on this guy.

    Shouldn't we have a mandatory retirement age for these guys. He's freakin' 83, and yes Bryd is 90 and he needs to go to.

    Been following this story on Steven's, there is a ton on innuendo on what he allegedly did.. be interesting to see what happens. Maybe he and Jefferson can share a cell someday and compare notes.

    I'm sure Bush has already got the pardon stamp all inked up and ready to go.

    Stevens sucks, I'd love to see him go to prison. He's the one that refused to swear in energy industry executives when they testified, so that their testimony couldn't be used under oath. When other Senators objected he ruled them out of order and continued taking testimony without oath.

    I'm beginning to think the best thing for this country is to turn our Government over to the Nation Of Islam.

    Put that Muslim Congressman in the White House.

    Appoint A Muslim To The Presidency and let them clean this Government up, Bring Allah & The Koran into the Presidency.

    God Is Great
