Thanks to Motor City Bad Boy, and ABC News:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens has been convicted of lying about free home renovations and other gifts he received from a wealthy oil contractor.

The Senate’s longest-serving Republican, Stevens was found guilty on all seven counts of making false statements on Senate financial documents.

The verdict throws the upcoming election into disarray. Stevens is fighting off a challenge from Democrat Mark Begich and must now either drop out or continue campaigning as a convicted felon.

I thought if you got convicted while in office, you had to give up your Congressional or Senate Seat.  Can someone clarify?

Wow.  And on the last week before Election Day, too….

I bet he’s hollering “NO!” like he did on that Bridge to Nowhere he won for the state a few years ago; the one that Sarah Palin was for before she was AGAINST it.
