Is One Of The Senate’s Pork Kings In Trouble ?

by Doug Mataconis

Senator Ted Stevens’ home was raided by FBI and IRS agents executing a search warrant

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Agents from the FBI and Internal Revenue Service on Monday searched the home of U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens, an official said.

Investigators arrived at the Republican senator’s home in Girdwood shortly before 2:30 p.m. Alaska time, said Dave Heller, FBI assistant special agent.

Heller said he could not comment on the nature of the investigation.

The Justice Department has been looking into the seven-term senator’s relationship with a wealthy contractor as part of a public corruption investigation.

This could get interesting…..

  1. It seems to me the people misguiding this country are all rich. These same people seem to always have companies that benefit from multimillion dollar govt contracts. Whatever happened to the representative of the people? The common people are not rich! Perhaps the only way this country will ever move in the right direction is if there was a wealth cap on govt officials. Maybe then the interest of the people and nation would come first.

  2. I’ll bet if Ted Stevens goes to jail, he’ll be carried out on a stretcher. Much in the same way Paris Hilton was initially released for an “undisclosed medical condition.”

  3. Looks like the Justice Department investigates Republican politicians after all :) This article made my day.

    And Po Boy, if your dream of a government of “common people” consists of giving tax dollars away to poor people, then the people you want in office are really no different than Ted Stevens. Collecting taxes with the idea of redistributing wealth is still theft, same as corruption and earmarks…doesn’t really matter what the thief’s personal background is, if what he’s spending the money on isn’t meant to benefit all taxpayers equally then the only thing you’ve changed is the group doing the stealing.
