Ted Stevens needs a good lawyer

From the court room stand, CEO of the oil company Veso, Bill Allen states that several of his workers did work on Stevens remodeled home.  Unfortunately, they were on the company dime at the time.  Oops.

I wonder how Ted Stevens would look in one of those prison jumpsuits.


From TPM:

Under cross-examination by defense attorney James Wendt, representing former state Rep. Pete Kott, Allen acknowledged that the more than $400,000 he admitted spending in the bribery charge was for other legislators – and including for work done at the Girdwood, Alaska, home of Stevens, the longest serving Republican in the U.S. Senate.”I gave Ted some old furniture,” Allen said. “I don’t think there was a lot of material, There was some labor.”

The workers were VECO employees, probably one to four at a time, Allen said. He said the work on the home lasted for “probably a couple of months.” Later, he said it might have been as much as six months.  (more…)

From WaPo:

Agents from the FBI and the Internal Revenue Service raided the Alaska home of Sen. Ted Stevens (R) yesterday as part of a broad federal investigation of political corruption in the state that has also swept up his son and one of his closest financial backers, officials said.

Stevens, the longest-serving Republican senator in history, is under scrutiny from the Justice Department for his ties to an Alaska energy services company, Veco, whose chief executive pleaded guilty in early May to a bribery scheme involving state lawmakers.  (more…)
