The Washington Post reports on the latest happenings in an investigation related to Senator Ted Stevens (R) of Alaska. In court testifying in a federal case was the former chief executive of Veco Corporation, who stated that he gave some material and labor that were used in the building of the Senator's home near Anchorage. Although some of the discussion in that case related to the Senator's son, the fact is that the Senator's home was raided pursuant to a search warrant. (See here). The question remains as to whether Senator Stevens is a target, subject, witness, or not even involved in this investigation. And one has to wonder whether his status will change as the investigation progresses. Will individuals be offered "deals" to encourage them to supply testimony against higher-ups?
