Report: Sen. Stevens Has Been Indicted
Stevens is facing a difficult reelection race against Anchorage Mayor Mark Begich, and has been under a cloud of ethical scrutiny as part of a wide-ranging probe of corruption in Alaska politics, with much of the investigation focused on alleged bribery by the oil services firm Veco Corp.
Capitol Briefing will provide more updates soon.
UPDATE: The Associated Press says Stevens was indicted for "making false statements."
UPDATE 2: Here is a copy of the indictment. It alleges that Stevens "knowingly and willfully engaged in a scheme to conceal ... his continuing receipt of hundreds of thousands of dollars of things of value from a private corporation and its chief executive officer by, among other things, failing to report them" on his annual Senate financial disclosure reports.
