On Monday, McCain's running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, called the verdict a "sad day" for Alaska and said she will continue to fight the "culture of corruption" that has pervaded her state.
"This is a sad day for Alaska and a sad day for Sen. Stevens and for his family," Palin said, adding that the fight against corruption must always "move forward regardless of party affiliation, or seniority or even past service."
"As the governor of Alaska I will carefully now monitor the situation and I will take any appropriate action as needed. In the meantime I do ask that the people of Alaska join me in respecting the workings of our judicial system and I'm confident that Sen. Stevens from this point on will do the right thing for the state of Alaska," she said without explicitly calling on Stevens to step down.

Yah, I tried to explain to the people in this thread that alaskan politics is riddled with corruption.
But in the same breath I tried to explain that the culture up there is soooo different than it is down here... completely different...
Whereabouts in anchorage? Until recently I lived off Northern Lights... Close to Arctic... not the best part of town, but it suited me fine after moving from the boonies
I live off Northern Lights too -- on the East Side though by Boniface...
Yes, I lived in Montana for a bit and well...the entire mental attitude and culture completley different ... I had to move back home!
