For the second time in two weeks, many are waiting for the oputcome of an ethics case involving an Alaskan politician. This time it involves US Senator Ted Stevens, previously famous for repeatedly describing the internet as "TOOBS".
The jury is out in the court case involving Stevens. As Votemaster notes: If he "is found guilty of having accepting lavish gifts and then concealing them on his Senate disclosure forms, his career as a senator will surely be finished."
After the shocks of the Palin saga, a guilty verdict would not bode well for the Republican party in Alaska. And it'll probably produce another precious US Senate seat for the Democrats.
