WASHINGTON (CNN) - A federal judge Wednesday denied a request by Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens to move his corruption trial to his home state so he could continue his re-election campaign.
His trial is scheduled to begin Sept. 24 in Washington.
Wondering, when is the trial of William Jefferson, Democrat, LA starting? Will there be a change in venue?
I mean, how often do we find $90,000 or so in cash in a freezer in an elected officials house???????????
I guess he doesn't trust the bank with his hard-earned dollars.
Ummm...as I recall, Stevens was the one who wanted the trial to begin BEFORE the election, not after. He certainly shouldn't complain about the venue when he was the one who wanted the date moved up. He needs to take his chances, just like everyone else.
NO MAN CAN AND IS NOT SUPPOSED TO GET A FAIR TRIAL AND REPRESENTATION EQUALLY OF THE COURTS.
I completly agree that William Jefferson needs to be tried as well.
There should be no favouritism when expelling vermin from Congress.
Re-election campaign? Is Ted delusional? Alaska is voting for a Democratic senator this year.
I would not mind seeing the LA DA go down and the same for Rep. Jefferson. I also want to see Stevens, Karl, Rove, Alberto Gonzalea, Tom DeLay and all of the other corrupt "public servants" go.
Caroline, good pick. Every circus needs more than one clown.
Kathleen left off one word.....It should be nightmare !!!!!!!
Idiot. The judge ain't THAT stupid. And, no, you can't sell him that bridge . . .
He should not worry. Why? Because if Panamanian McCain wins he will either become part of McCain's administration or will receive a pardon.
WHAT ME WORRY? No, my friend you are one of us!
Maybe they should try it in Connecticut where they found a former Republican governor guilty of similar home repairs–he had to resign.
The sad part is that he probably would get re-elected.
What's the whirring noise? Oh, I believe it's the founding fathers in their graves.
Less of people like Moore in the political process would be great. Electing Obama is like electing David Duke. Black or white racism is the same.
Another one bites the dust...
Its been almost a year now and I have had the same home phone number and cell phone number and I have NEVER EVER EVA EVA EVA been polled. So my advice to all you who have not been polled, don’t believe this because after almost a year of campaign polls that the media keeps reporting on you cant tell me AFTER A YEAR they could not have found the time to call either of my phones by now.
As a matter a fact no one I know has been polled. I bet CNN won’t post this because they don’t want people to know that these polls are a load of BS and that they are Media Driven.
CNN STOP INSULTING MY INTELLIGENCE
good, put the criminal behind bars where he and the rest of these neoCON repugs belong!!!!!!!

His trial is scheduled to begin Sept. 24 in Washington–.Who CARES
