Associated Press and other media are reporting that Republican Sen. Ted Stevens has been indicated. Stevens has been the subject of a bribery probe by federal officials for some time. The DOJ press release states "The seven-count indictment charges Sen. Stevens, the former chairperson of the Senate Committee on Appropriations, with engaging in a nearly eight-year scheme to conceal his receipt of more than $250,000 in things of value from VECO Corporation, formerly a multi-national oil services company based in Alaska, and Bill J. Allen, the Chief Executive Officer of VECO at the time." The press release also indicates the indictment "specifically charges Stevens with making false statements on his financial disclosure forms for calendar years 2001 to 2006. The indictment alleges that, during each of those years, Stevens knowingly failed to report his receipt of anything of value from Allen, VECO or two other individuals, despite the fact that the forms required Stevens to report his receipt of such things of value."
