Ted Stevens Investigated by FBI

You might remember Ted Stevens from famous insane Internet rants such as “The Internet is a Series of Tubes” …

He also goes nuts on the the floor of the Senate while wearing his Incredible Hulk tie (seriously!).

He’s also a HUGE opponent of net neutrality, loves big oil, and apparently a BIG fan of taking bribes.

At least the FBI thinks so:

Sen. Ted Stevens, the longest-serving Republican in the Senate, disclosed in an interview that the FBI asked him to preserve records as part of a widening investigation into Alaskan political corruption that has touched his son and ensnared one of his closest political confidants and financial backers.

Stevens, who is famous for bringing home federal earmarks for Alaska when he was Appropriations Committee chairman, was not previously known to be linked to the Justice Department’s probe, which has uncovered evidence that more than $400,000 worth of bribes were given to state lawmakers in exchange for favorable energy legislation

I’d LOVE to see this guy go down and thrown in prison. Maybe he and Libby can form a gang?
