Chapter . Senator Stevens

Senator Ted Stevens was convicted of lying about gifts and remodeling on his house, scooping up swag from people who had an ... erm ... interest in what the senator could do for them. The powerful Alaska legislator was the longest serving Republican senator and was most famous for “earmark” pork barrel spending, including the infamous “Bridge to Nowhere.” Stevens ran for re-election while he was on trial and was likely to win a tight race, only to face possible explusion from the Senate.
