TED STEVENS' HOUSE searched by the FBI. And IRS.

UPDATE: Don Surber: "Alaska’s three Republicans in Congress are an embarrassment. They should be impeached, er, expelled."

ANOTHER UPDATE: More on Stevens:

Top White House political advisor Karl Rove told a bunch of us over lunch last week that corruption was the single biggest issue in last fall’s election that overturned the GOP congressional majority. I have always agreed with this assessment, based on exit polls that showed corruption and runaway budget spending were actually more important to voters than Iraq.

So this Stevens business has to be swept away. The GOP should not defend him if he is guilty. Just clean house.

They should. They won't. And it'll cost them.
