INNOCENT!!! – TED STEVENS (R) ALASKA – April 01, 2009
SENATOR TED STEVENS, REPUBLICAN FROM ALASKA, IS INNOCENT JUST AS HE SAID ALL ALONG!
But the damage is done. The longest serving Republican in the Senate lost his bid for an eighth term after being convicted of seven counts of lying on his Senate disclosure form in order to conceal $250,000 in gifts from an oil industry executive and other friends. These charges were ALL UNTRUE, AS IS NOW ACKNOWLEDGED BY ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER!
Democrats were desperate to get a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate at all costs. They went after Stevens’ seat in a despicable and dishonest way and GOT IT!
When Democrats can’t win a fair and honest election, they work to disqualify and/or discredit their opponents, as they did in Stevens’ case. They are going after Sarah Palin like bees in a bee hive right now. She currently owes one half million dollars in attorney fees to fight numerous frivolous ethics violation charges, all of which are nonsense. (Who do you suppose is encouraging people to bring these charges against Palin? Who do you think pays the legal expenses of those bringing frivolous law suits against Palin? Hmmm?)
Attorney General Eric Holder’s Statement on the Ted Stevens Case:
“In connection with the post-trial litigation in United States v. Theodore F. Stevens, the Department of Justice has conducted a review of the case, including an examination of the extent of the disclosures provided to the defendant. After careful review, I have concluded that certain information should have been provided to the defense for use at trial. In light of this conclusion, and in consideration of the totality of the circumstances of this particular case, I have determined that it is in the interest of justice to dismiss the indictment and not proceed with a new trial.
“The Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility will conduct a thorough review of the prosecution of this matter. This does not mean or imply that any determination has been made about the conduct of those attorneys who handled the investigation and trial of this case. (This statement is a JOKE!)
“The Department of Justice must always ensure that any case in which it is involved is handled fairly and consistent with its commitment to justice. Under oftentimes trying conditions, the attorneys who serve in this Department live up to those principles on a daily basis. I am proud of them and of the work they do for the American people.” (That’s a shame. Their actions and lack of honesty is deplorable. They should be punished. Stevens should sue them.)
The bottom line is that Democrats will stop at nothing to gain power. We’ve witnessed this time and time again. ACORN is as prime example. Pres. Obama is another classic example. From a CNN article (hardly a right-wing organization):
May 30, 2008 by Drew Griffin and Kathleen Johnston, CNN’s AC 360
“In his first race for office, seeking a state Senate seat on Chicago’s gritty South Side in 1996, Obama effectively used election rules to eliminate his Democratic competition.
As a community organizer, he had helped register thousands of voters. But when it came time to run for office, he employed Chicago rules to invalidate the voting petition signatures of three of his challengers.
The move denied each of them, including incumbent Alice Palmer, a longtime Chicago activist, a place on the ballot. It cleared the way for Obama to run unopposed on the Democratic ticket in a heavily Democrat district.
“That was Chicago politics,” said John Kass, a veteran Chicago Tribune columnist. “Knock out your opposition, challenge their petitions, destroy your enemy, right? It is how Barack Obama destroyed his enemies back in 1996 that conflicts with his message today. He may have gotten his start registering thousands of voters. But in that first race, he made sure voters
had just one choice.” Watch how Obama shut out challengers in his first race ��
Obama’s challenge was perfectly legal, said Jay Stewart of the Chicago’s Better Government Association. Although records of the challenges are no longer on file for review with the election board, Stewart said Obama is not the only politician to resort to petition challenges to eliminate the competition.
“He came from Chicago politics,” Stewart said. “Politics ain’t beanbag, as they say in Chicago. You play with your elbows up, and you’re pretty tough and ruthless when you have to be. Sen. Obama felt that’s what was necessary at the time, that’s what he did. Does it fit in with the rhetoric now? Perhaps not.”
Folks, preparing for the elections in 2010 will be MUCH MORE OF THE SAME! DON’T BE FOOLED. ALLEGATIONS AGAINST EVERY REPUBLICAN THAT THE DEMOCRATS FEAR WILL BE NUMEROUS.
I’m coming to the conclusion that we need term limits in the House and Senate and that we need some laws governing frivolous lawsuits that eat up a person’s income in attorney fees defending themselves. I believe that if someone brings a frivolous lawsuit against another person, and they lose, then they should pay the defense expenses of the person they charged plus a high dollar penalty. This should discourage everyone except ACORN and those Democrats funded by George Soros. I don’t have a solution for that yet. Prison time for Soros, if he is proven to be funding these incidents could be something worth consideration.
Senator Stevens won’t be the last opponent the Democrats attack to eliminate in this way. Don’t be too quick to believe charges against Republicans when you hear them on the news.
Stevens broke no laws and was innocent, but I can think of a number of Democrats who DID break laws and are still serving in the House and Senate and even in Obama’s adminstrative team. These people should have charges brought against them and they should be run out of office, starting with Timothy Geithner, moving to Sen. Dodd, then Barney Frank, Maxine Waters, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and several others.
HOLD THEIR FEET TO THE FIRE.
