From the L.A. Times to my inbox to your eyes (I guess they'll have to rename the airport!):

Sen. Ted Stevens found guilty in corruption case

Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens has been convicted of lying about free home renovations and other gifts he received from a wealthy oil contractor.

The Senate's longest-serving Republican, Stevens was found guilty on all seven counts of making false statements on Senate financial documents.

Stevens faces up to five years in prison on each count but, under federal sentencing guidelines, will likely receive much less prison time, if any.

The reasons that Stevens was found guilty:

(Choose all that apply)

1. Arrogance of power.

2. Senility.

3. Liberal conspiracy.

4. That's way things are done in Alaska.

Or how about he broke the law? By the way, this is one of the dinosaurs Palin trounced in AK.

Let's see how things turn out with the questions surrounding how Sarah, while Mayor of Wasilla and candidate for Lt. Governor managed to build a $500,000 house with "help" from a couple of contractors who got contracts to build a sports center in town, and who were implicated in the Stevens' scandal; and how things go in the questions raised by the AP regarding the company that got the contract to build the natural gas pipeline after Palin ignored legal advice and involved herself deeply in the bidding and awarding process.

I don't know how many people know this, but there is no rule against a convicted felon serving in the U.S. Senate. 2/3rds of the senators need to remove him.
