Senator Ted Stevens indicted by Federal grand jury

A federal grand jury indicted Senator Stevens this morning on seven criminal counts of making false statements. He is the first sitting U.S. Senator to face federal indictment since 1993. The charges allege that Stevens took hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of gifts from the oil field services company VECO, and didn’t report them on the annual financial disclosure forms required by law.
