Commerce Committee Chair Stevens Found Guilty of Making False Statements

Oct 27, 2008  •  Post A Comment

A federal jury today found former Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Sen. Ted Stevens guilty of making false statements on Senate disclosure forms, a verdict likely to devastate the Republican’s already difficult re-election hopes.
Sen. Stevens, 84, remains the ranking Republican on the commerce committee, which considers virtually all broadcasting legislation. His departure likely would make Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison the panel’s ranking Republican.
Sen. Stevens was accused of not reporting gifts from contractors. He was found guilty of seven charges of making false statements, each of which carries a sentence of up to five years in jail. However, Sen. Stevens is expected to receive significantly less jail time than that, if any.
