Our Justice System Functioning?

Ted Stevens found guilty of all seven felony counts against him!

If the disgraced Sen Ted Stevens is not a subject of selective targeting and our justice system is functional, then how come the President [sic] continues to get away with mass murder?

Stevens, 84, was convicted of all seven corruption charges against him and if this conviction doesn’t end his 40-year political career as Alaska’s Senator, then we have an even bigger problem than we thought.

Stevens felony charges included lying about free home renovations and other gifts from a wealthy oil magnet. Although he faces up to five years in prison on each count, he may receive much less prison time under federal guidelines!

Interestingly, despite his conviction, he is not automatically disqualified as a Senator. In fact, if he wins re-election, he can keep his seat simply because there is no rule preventing felons from serving in Congress! Only the Senate could vote to expel him.

A prospect he finds unlikely: “Put this down: That will never happen — ever, OK?” Stevens said before his trial. “I am not stepping down. I’m going to run through, and I’m going to win this election.”
