Breaking News: Sen Stevens Indicted

It was just announced on CNBC that Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK) has been indicted by the Justice Department. Stevens has long been an example of what's wrong with national politics. For many politicians once elected it becomes all about how can my position help my bottom line. Public service should be just that a temporary service to the nation to ensure the government is properly run. Public service should not be a lucrative career. Fortunately, Stevens actually has a primary challenger this cycle. He should resign his seat now to prepare his defense or to get his affairs in order before starting his prison term. Either way good riddance.

Hopefully Stevens wins the primary then resigns....and can be replaced by a credible R on the ballot.

Seems unlikely that Stevens is the kind of guy who would step aside though.
