I wrote an earlier letter to Sitnews concerning Sen. Stevens.
They apparently did not like it and did not print it. So this
time I am going to keep in simple.
Senator Steven is not being indicted because of his Bridge to
Nowhere. He is the longest public serving member of the Senate
and he is being indicted on seven counts of failing to disclose
thousands of dollars in services he received from a company that
helped renovate his home.
Now why would this be a big deal? Because companies should be
allowed to fairly bid on getting jobs. By offering favors for
jobs other companies who could have done a job and maybe would
have bid cheaper were not even given a fair chance.
And also, because as a public servant he is required to fill
out these documents which he has done over all the years as a
senator. By not filling them out correctly, or giving the excuses
he is giving Senator Stevens is lying to the American people.
This is not the first one he has filled out. He is being held
While the bridges to no where were felt to be a great pork barrel
spending project, there have been others in Stevens past, and
if you dont want unnecessary attention, then you dont over do
things. Having a tantrum and threatening to quit congress if
you dont get your way is a definate way to get unwanted attention.
Now he has it.
