Uncle Ted Found Guilty
Can't say I'm surprised. I'm also quite happy--Ted Stevens did a lot for the state, sure, but ultimately he became corrupt, and that's when it's time for a change. I don't care how much good you do--if you think you're above the law in any regard, you don't deserve that power, and your punishment should be very harsh. Unfortunately, even though Ted got five years, he probably won't serve much, if any, of it. This also means he's out of the running for his senate seat on Election Day, and that his opponent, Mark Begich, a democrat, will win by default. I'm all for that, too.
