Eskimo Whalers for Ted Stevens
Even if GOP presidential nominee John McCain and his running mate, Sarah Palin, want convicted Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) to resign, Eskimo whalers are fully backing the senator.
Stevens' embattled reelection campaign released a press release Tuesday afternoon announcing "Senator Stevens Picks Up More Endorsements... Eskimo Whalers and Retired Lt. General Stand Firm behind Stevens."
The release says Stevens, who was convicted Monday on seven counts of lying on his Senate financial disclosure records, has picked up "two more endorsements today, one from the Alaska Eskimo Whaling Commission (AEWC) and another from Lt. General Tom McInerney, U.S. Air Force (ret.) and former head of the Alaska Command and Assistant Vice Chief of Staff of the Air Force. Both strongly support Senator Stevens's reelection and urge Alaskans to vote for the Senator on Election Day."
The 84-year-old convicted felon senator, who is being pushed to resign by others within his own party, had this to say of the endorsements: "I am honored and humbled to continue to have the support of so many Alaskans. I am proud of what we have accomplished over the years. By working together we can make our state even better for future generations of Alaskans. I look forward to coming home and listening to Alaskans about the issues that will define this election."
So far, it doesn't look like he's listening to the likes of McCain and Palin.
