GOP Woes Continue: Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens Convicted on All Charges

It's going from bad to worse for Republican candidates. The bad news today is the conviction of Sen. Ted Stevens, the longest-serving Republican in the U.S. Senate.

Here's the lead on the Stevens conviction from the the Associated Press:
WASHINGTON—Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens has been convicted of lying about free home renovations and other gifts he received from a wealthy oil contractor…. Stevens was found guilty on all seven counts of making statements on Senate financial documents.
Stevens is running for re-election in Alaska, so the verdict may spell the end of his political career. And it can't be good news for the other prominent Alaska Republican, Gov. Sarah Palin, who has supported Stevens in the past.

UPDATE: A loyal Republican, Sen. Stevens has proudly endorsed his fellow Alaska Republican, Sarah Palin.

I cannot believe that he squandered his name and reputation on the littel that he received.
