Irony, Thy Name Is Ted Stevens

by Doug Mataconis

Talk about bad timing:

There’s never exactly a convenient time to have one’s house raided by federal agents. But for Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) the impolitic timing Tuesday was exquisite: One day after the feds rummaged through his property on a corruption probe, he threatened to try to kill an ethics reform package.

Cracking down on private gifts to lawmakers, Stevens warned colleagues, would make it more expensive for him to travel the vast interior of Alaska on private jets.

No, seriously, he really said that. The day after his house was raided in a corruption probe.
