EDIT: title should read "Senator's Corruption comes to light" Ted Stevens, the longest-serving Republican in the history of the US Sentate, WWII hero, master of congressional intrigue, now sees his legacy of a lifetime of public service all about to go down the toilet. Anchorage Daily News CNN I like Uncle Ted. I really do. He did a lot of great things for Alaskans in the 70s, 80s and 90s. Not even the great, rich and powerful are above the laws of the country. He'll get his day in court, but no matter what happens his image is forever soiled.
