More Cold Cash

U.S. Representative William Jefferson kept his cash in the freezer; Bill Allen, the chief executive of Veco, handed his out in Alaska to members of the state legislature. The FBI and the IRS have now raided the home of Alaska U.S. Senator Ted Stevens.

My favorite part of the story is that "The Alaska investigation has centered on Allen's efforts to bribe lawmakers by handing out wads of hundred-dollar bills." If you wanted to bribe people, that sure sounds like a good technique.

Stevens asks the public to withhold judgment until all the facts can come out and says that he plans to run for reelection in 2008. Could this be our chance to finally rid the Senate of the famed promoter of the Bridge to Nowhere?
