“I am guilty of asking the Senate for pork and proud of the Senate for giving it to me.” -Ted Stevens
Ted Stevens has been indicted for bribery, corruption, and looking like Emperor Palpatine.*
Stevens (R-SITH) is actually being prosecuted for failing to disclose like 8 billion dollars (ok, ok $250,000) of home renovations done by Veco, a company which is also involved in the oil industry. Guess who supports drilling in Alaska?
You may remember Stevens from his Bridge to No Where fame. Stevens has directed nearly 3.3 billion dollars in funding and projects to Alaska. And I thought Republicans were supposed to support small government?
Perhaps you remember him from his Series of Tubes (You really, really wanna watch the whole video) debacle, during which he sounded like a fucking retarded and proved he should not be making policy on these matters.
Or any matters.
