Ta Ta Ted!

Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) aren't you a lucky dog? You thought
your power and the rich state of Alaska would save you from
being convicted of falsifying Senate, therefore, Federal forms
of gift disclosure.

NO!! See the following article to figure out why
your Senatorial rear-end is destined for the clinker,
but not yet.
The AP:
Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, was convicted on all seven charges of making false statements on Senate financial documents about gifts he received from contractor Bill Allen, oil services company VECO Corp., and others.
Below are the charges. The verdict form is broken down by year and jurors did not have to indicate which gifts, if any, they believe Stevens concealed.
COUNT ONE: False Statements, Scheme
ACCUSATION: Stevens engaged in a scheme to conceal from his Senate financial disclosure documents home renovations and other gifts he received from Allen and VECO from 2000-2006. Stevens contends he never asked for any freebies and believed he paid for everything he received.
COUNT TWO: False Statements
ACCUSATION: Stevens knowingly made false, fictitious or fraudulent statements on his 2001 Senate financial disclosure form regarding gifts from Allen and others. That year, VECO employees dramatic renovated Stevens' mountain cabin, building a new first floor and installing a new electrical system. Allen also filled Stevens' house with furniture, left a tool box in his garage and installed a grill on the porch. Stevens also received from another friend an expensive massage chair, which Stevens said was a loan, and a custom work of stained glass, which Stevens said his wife arranged and he knew nothing about.
Why oh why? You're not exactly an unintelligent
person. Just a little forgetful.
Here is the reason that you gave that I detest: You said it was
your wife's doing, and you had no idea about home improvements or custom - made stained glass art, so That's why YOU did not know about your received services and items and didn't declare
on his Senate Gift Disclosure forms in 2001 and 2002.
You threw your own Wife "under the bus."
Shame on you, Ted Stevens. Shame on you.
Do the right thing. Resign.
