You can read all you want elsewhere about today’s indictment of Senator Ted Stevens. The only thing I want to note here is the news in the indictment that Stevens allegedly used his office to assist VECO–the firm that “oversaw a construction project in 2000 that doubled the size of Stevens’ home”–with international projects in Pakistan and Russia.
