Governor Palin Comments on Dismissal of Stevens Conviction
Governor Sarah Palin today released the following statement after a federal judge dismissed the conviction of former U.S. Senator Ted Stevens:
"I know the agony the senator has felt, and nothing can change what he has gone through or the loss of his Senate seat, which meant the world to him and virtually as much to Alaska. There's no way he can just put this behind him' as some have suggested he should. Senator Stevens is a resilient man and I hope that he will continue to make a contribution to Alaska and the nation."
