BREAKING: US Senator Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) indicted

From FOXNews.com:

Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, has been indicted on seven "charges related to (his) holding of public office," two federal government sources told FOX News on Tuesday. The Justice Department has announced a 1:20 p.m. ET press conference that a release says is "regarding a criminal matter." Nearly one year ago to the day, federal investigators raided Stevens' Alaska home as part of a probe of his relationship to an oil field services contractor convicted last year in a state corruption case. The contractor, Bill Allen, in 2000 also oversaw construction for a major renovation of Stevens' house in the ski community of Girdwood. Stevens has claimed he paid for all the construction.
