The victim of brutal liberal elections tactics, Ted Stevens lost his re-election campaign in 2008 after his name was dragged through the mud on corruption charges, and an illegal conviction - a conviction that was voided and all indictment dismissed almost immediately after the election showed his liberal competitor as the election victor. He was the longest serving Republican Senator in the history of the Senate, and though he was known for bringing home the bacon, his actions helped develop the infrastructure of the last frontier. No voice for limited government, but a man who devoted his entire life to the Great State of Alaska, Ted Stevens was taken from this earth by the Alaska he loved so dearly.
Ted Stevens was a passenger on a single engine plane, along with 8 others (including crew), which crashed en-route to a private fishing lodge in southwest Alaska.
Thank you for your service. May you find peace and rest in the world that lies beyond our own! God bless you, Sen Stevens, and may He watch over your family and the State of Alaska in this time of loss.
