One more dishonor for Stevens


Ted Stevens (R-AK) has been indicted, convicted and defeated for re-election. Now he has received what amounts to a lifetime achievement award from the Citizens Against Government Waste. That’s pretty much what CAGW’s Tom Schatz said when announcing Stevens was getting the December Porker of the Month award. Schatz credited Stevens with 1,452 pork-barrel projects worth $3.4B over the years. He labeled the award Stevens’ “swine song.”
