Conviction of former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens set aside: So where does the Senator go to get his job back?

This is really an amazing prosecutorial abuse.

A federal judge set aside the conviction of former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens and appointed a special prosecutor to investigate possible criminal-contempt charges against federal prosecutors who the judge said repeatedly withheld evidence from defense attorneys.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan said, "In 25 years on the bench I have never seen anything approach the mishandling and misconduct I have seen in this case."

He appoined Wahington lawyer Henry Schuelke to investigate six prosecutors who handled the case. . . . .

This was done on the eve of the election, clearly a political indictmenet.

Yet the Democrat from AK benefits from this criminality. The fruits of crime are very sweet for the Democrats.

In a casual study I did years back I noted that wherever the voting irregularities had the DEAD voting, the DEAD always voted the Democratic line.

ACORN now heavily federally funded.

The future looks rather grim, especially for 2nd Amendment.
