Alaskan Republican Stevens guilty of corruption


In this video from the USA, Senator Ted Stevens, now a convicted crook, endorses Sarah Palin.

From CNN in the USA:

A jury found U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens of Alaska guilty Monday of all seven counts in his federal corruption trial.

The jury found Stevens guilty of “knowingly and willfully” scheming to conceal on Senate disclosure forms more than $250,000 in home renovations and other gifts from an Alaska-based oil industry contractor.

Stevens faces a maximum sentence of up to to 35 years in prison — five years for each of the seven counts.

Legal experts note the judge has the discretion to give Stevens as little as no jail time and probation when he is sentenced. …

The longest-serving Republican senator in history, Stevens becomes the first senator to be convicted of a felony since 1981.
