Say What?….Alaska Republicans Want New Senate Election

April 2, 2009

If you think you have heard every bone-headed Republican idea, well think again.

The Alaska Republican Party is calling for the resignation of U.S. Sen. Mark Begich after the Justice Department dropped charges against the incumbent he defeated last fall, Ted Stevens.

Party officials say Begich, a Democrat, should resign to allow for a special election so Alaskans can vote for a senator without the improper influence of the “corrupt” Justice Department.

Stevens was the longest-serving Republican in U.S. Senate history but lost in November by nearly 4,000 votes to Begich.

The state GOP party says the only reason Begich won is because a few thousand Alaskans thought that Stevens was guilty of seven felonies. Stevens was charged with failing to disclose gifts and home renovations.

Mind you the allegations against the former Senator are still valid, and though he will not go through the court process, he has more than enough evidence piled against him to prove his guilt.   It is a shame that the prosecutors bungled the mechanics of the case.  Having said that, Stevens is one lucky SOB. and should be happy to just hide away in Alaska.

    No, sir, the allegations are not valid. Why do you lie like that?
