Ted Stevens of Alaska guilty on all seven counts of making false statements on Senate disclosure forms.

Stevens had been charged with failing to disclose hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of gifts and work on his house in Alaska.

The 84-year-old senator is locked in a tight race for re-election, hoping to retain the seat he has held since 1968.

Sentencing is set for January 26.

    Actually this makes Stevens perfectly qualified to serve on the Chicago City Council. Maybe Barry could put him in touch with some slumlords, a domestic terrorist, maybe a racist minister or two.

    On Sept 11, 2001 we were attacked. Attacked while the republicans held the white house and both houses. The republicans are INCOMPETENT and UNABLE to protect us.

    We need democrats who know how to keep us safe, and not allow us to get attacked! Vote Obama for the safety of our country, in terms of both economy and terrorism, democrats are proven true. Republicans are incompetent!
