Sen. Stevens Convicted

I will shed no tears over the conviction of Alaska Senator Ted Stevens. An unapologetic lifelong champion of pork-barrel projects like the infamous Bridge to Nowhere, the facts of this case illustrate the extent to which pork and corruption go hand in hand. Ted Stevens was no friend of the taxpayer. And senators of his ilk completely undercut the efforts of other Senators (like Tom Coburn and John McCain) to restore the Republican party’s image as the party of fiscal discipline.
