Sen. Ted Stevens To Do the Perp Walk

Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens is guilty on seven counts:

Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) was convicted today on seven counts of failing to report more than $250,000 in improper gifts he received from 1999 to 2006, a stunning blow to a political career that has lasted more than 40 years and marked Alaska’s entire history as a part of the United States. Stevens, 84, now faces a question over whether he will resign, and if he does not, whether he can win reelection Nov. 4 in an already tough race.

At first, Stevens showed no emotion, holding his stomach as verdict was read. But a few minutes later, it seemed to sink in as Stevens sat quietly, hunched over with his hands covering his face. Stevens, visibly shaken, did not take any questions as he quickly slipped out a side door of the federal courthouse and left in a white van.
My guess is he hangs in there, wins, then resigns and Palin appoints a true conservative to take his place who isn't a friggin' felon and thief like Stevens.

Adios, Senator, I hope enjoy your time as a guest of the taxpayers as much as you enjoyed the dirty money and damage you did to your party.
