Imagine a scenario where Ted Stevens never was indicted nor convicted of seven felony counts of corruption. Then imagine that Mark Begich beat Stevens in the election for the US Senate seat and today was Stevens’ last day in the Senate. It would look EXACTLY the same as what we’re seeing today in a world were Stevens is a convicted felon seven times over.
Not only are Republicans getting down on their knees for Ted, but Democratic Senators are crying on the floor of the Senate at the loss of Ted Stevens.
The man is a criminal. He is a felon. He broke the public trust and he abused the US Senate to profit personally. For that he faces jail time. And yet he is treated like one of the greatest heroes in American history. Simply sickening.
