Ted Sevens--Devoted Public Official
Ted Stevens has been a great public elected official for many years. He has devoted his life to the people of Alaska and the United States. His recent indictment is a result of a political witch hunt by the Democrats and his political opponents.
If one reads the Washington Post or the New York Times, one would think that most people assume, or have concluded, that Sen. Ted Stevens is guilty. After all, didn't a D.C. grand jury indict Mr. Stevens on seven felony counts? Haven't the U.S. government and its federal prosecutors concluded that Mr. Stevens failed to disclose taking more than $250,000 worth of gifts on his Senate financial-disclosure forms?
Who is Bill Allen, the main witness that is trying to target Senator Stevens? Is he trying to save his own skin with untrue statements? Why indict Senator Stevens right before his Primary and General election? Why has Congressman Jefferson not been indicted with tons of evidence against him for taking thousands of dollars in bribes and taking $90,000 out of his freezer? What about Senator Reed and his son concerning land deals in Nevada?
Under our judicial system, Senator Stevens should be presumed to be an innocent man until he is proven guilty by the U.S. government beyond a reasonable doubt. The Democrats want to give Iraq war criminals more rights than a US Senator. The grand jury voted the indictment based on one-sided evidence presented by prosecutors, without Sen. Stevens or his attorneys having an opportunity to be present, to cross-examine witnesses, or to present contrary evidence that could have created a reasonable doubt regarding his guilt.
The political opponents of Senator Stevens are targeting him due to his success in the Senate and as a provider of funds to Alaska. Many of us support Senator Stevens and want to see him win this political battle and his reelection.
