Ted Stevens overturned conviction
Attorney General Eric Holder overturned Ted Stevens' convictions yesterday on all seven counts for which he was convicted late in 2008. Apparently, it was due to the prosecution withholding evidence and inappropriate relationships between witness and counsel. Talk about a technicality. The guy was guilty as sin of corruption charges and now he will be cleared. At least he knows that he will have to live with his deeds for the rest of his life and since he is guilty in the court of public opinion, he will never hold office again. The Justice Department showed its integrity by not playing politics and following the letter of the law-and by overturning due to this kind of technicality they sure did.
