Crazyman Ted Stevens raided, more corruption from GOP

FBI raids Sen. Stevens’s Alaska home

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) raided the home of Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) on Monday, advancing the corruption probe that has ensnared the once-untouchable GOP dean.

The Anchorage Daily News first reported the search of Stevens’s Girdwood, Alaska, residence on Monday afternoon, citing the assistant special agent in charge of the FBI’s local office.

That home has fueled the investigation into Stevens’ ties to oil-field services company Veco, whose two top executives recently resigned after pleading guilty to bribery and fraud.</em>

He’s up for reelection next year, so if he isn’t driven out of office before then by this investigation, he’ll be gone soon enough. Yeah. Although we have to admit, watching The Daily Show skewer this flake has been fun.
