Ted, you were convicted.

“I’ve not been convicted yet,” Stevens said Thursday in a meeting with the editorial board of the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner. “There’s not a black mark by my name yet, until the appeal is over and I am finally convicted, if that happens. If that happens, of course I’ll do what’s right for Alaska and for the Senate. ... I don’t anticipate it happening, and until it happens I do not have a black mark.”

Stevens reiterated that position during a televised debate late Thursday night, declaring early in the give-and-take with Anchorage Mayor Mark Begich, “I have not been convicted of anything.”

Hmm...brief reminder,

CNN reporting that Sen. Ted Stevens has been found guilty on all seven counts of making false statements on his financial disclosure forms.

Look, being on appeal does not mean that the conviction is set aside until the appeal is resolved. Its a rebutable presumption. You are convicted unless the appeals court decides to overturn. Any one in Alaska who votes for this guy should really think about what is important to them and whether they would teach their kids the kind of values Stevens displays.


O-le,O-le, O-le, O-le! O-le, O-le!
