IT’S TIME FOR THEM TO GO: More Ted Stevens troubles: “The FBI is investigating the National Science Foundation’s award of $170 million in contracts to the oil field services company that oversaw renovations on U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens’ home, McClatchy Newspapers has learned. . . . The disclosure provides further evidence of the degree to which the investigation of public corruption in the Alaska legislature has widened to include at least two of the state’s three members of Congress. Alaska’s sole congressman, U.S. Rep. Don Young, is also under investigation for his ties to Veco.”

I don’t know how much there is to this story, but Stevens’ questionable dealings continue to mount, and Young isn’t looking much better. If the GOP is smart, they’ll be encouraged to retire in time to run somebody obviously non-criminal in the next election.
