Stevens (R-AK); Guilty x 7

The verdict is in:
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A jury found U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens of Alaska guilty Monday of all seven counts in his federal corruption trial.

The jury found Stevens guilty of "knowingly and willfully" scheming to conceal on Senate disclosure forms more than $250,000 in home renovations and other gifts from an Alaska-based oil industry contractor.
I was leaning acquittal, but I wasn't there to see all the testimony.

The question now, is will Sen. Stevens gracefully exit and take care of his persona business, or will he pull a Larry Craig and drag as many fellow office holders he can down with him. With a week and change to go before the election, his entire reputation is at stake.
