Kay Bailey Hutchison Punts on Ted Stevens

Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, the number three Republican in the Senate, had the following to say about convicted felon Ted Stevens (R-AK):

"This jury's conviction of Senator Ted Stevens is very serious; however, the justice system has not run its course. Every American has the right to pursue a case to the end and he should be accorded that right; no more and no less than any other person. Since this case has been tried so close to Election Day, the people in Alaska should have a voice in this matter. I am thankful for Ted Stevens' service to our country as a highly decorated veteran and as an elected Senator for over forty years."

Perhaps it is unsurprising that someone with her history is sympathetic to someone who's been prosecuted.
