Senator Stevens Indicted

The Times has posted the Stevens indictment.   The Times reports:

Mr. Stevens, 84, was indicted on seven felony counts related to renovations on his home in Alaska. The charges 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.

“I am innocent of these charges and intend to prove that,” Mr. Stevens said several hours after the indictment was announced. He said in a statement that he had temporarily relinquished his Senate leadership positions “until I am absolved of these charges.”
