Sen. Ted Stevens indicted*

Alaska Senator Ted Stevens has been indicted on what appear to be corruption charges. The story is developing.

*Corruption it is. From the NYT: Mr. Stevens, 84, was indicted on seven counts of falsely reporting income. The charges are related to renovations on his home and to gifts he has received. They arise from an investigation that has been under way for more than a year, in connection with the senator’s relationship with a businessman who oversaw the home-remodeling project.
