    Well, he's been found guilty; whether he will be going to prison is a further question. But he certainly won't be going back to the US Senate. I feel a bit sorry for him for being such a corrupt, arrogant, foolish old fart.

    You are right. I was assuming that he could not be re-elected, but no law prevents a convicted felon from being elected to the US Senate or serving in it. The most that one can say is that this is a setback to his campaign.

    Considering most felons can't vote, that is crazy

    Yes, no law prevents it, but the senate would not stand to have an incarcerated member and would depose him. Even Republican senators wouldn't want him around.

    Historically, there have been 4 sitting Senators convicted of Felonies. 3 of them resigned. The fourth tried to remain in the Senate but the Senate expelled him..Stevens is Toast

    I am. He used to fly in to DC (he had a private plane even then, Daddy's money)when she'd moved there after she graduated Wellesley to take her to dinner. As she said, "In those days, we didn't have to "do" anything, and if a man wanted to take me to dinner, why not?" Now when she sees him on t.v. she shakes her head and goes "Oh, really, Ted." She says he was always arrogant and full of himself.

    But apparently she dated a lot. She eventually married my father who looked good in his Marine Corps Major dress whites as the Cherry Blossom King. And we all know how that turned out. Mayflower Mom and Antebellum Dad. There was nothing civil about that war. :rolleyes:

    I'm sure he'll be incarcerated along with all the other white collar badasses at one of those federal "country club" pens in Florida or some such.

    i'd be surprised if he spends a day in the can, but who knows. i wonder if he'd get pardoned? I'm not sure Bush cares about Stevens very much though.
