Alaskan political meltdown: Senator Ted Stevens

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

Alaska’s Ted Stevens, the Senate’s longest serving Republican in office, faces prosecution for major corruption charges. His trial is moving ahead, with a preliminary hearing scheduled for this morning. He is also in a tight election fight for his Senate seat against Anchorage mayor Mark Begich. The Takeaway talks with Alaska Public Radio Network correspondent Libby Casey, who examined the case against Stevens and the Senate race.
