A Felon in the US Senate?

Hosted by

Alaska's Ted Stevens, the longest serving Republican in the Senate, was convicted last week of seven felony charges.  But he continued his race for re-election, and with votes still coming in, he's clinging onto a narrow lead over Anchorage Mayor Mark Begich, the Democrat who dared to challenge him. Carl Shepro, Professor of Political Science at the University of Alaska Anchorage, has more on the first convicted felon ever to win a race for the US Senate.
