The Long Arm of the Law

I wanna know more.

Federal agents raided Alaska legislative offices in Juneau, Anchorage, Eagle River and Wasilla today, with search warrants executed on the offices of several state legislators.

Among the offices being searched were those of Senate President Ben Stevens, R-Anchorage, and Senate Rules Committee Chairman John Cowdery, R-Anchorage. They’re next door to each other on the fifth floor of the downtown legislative offices. Agents were also seen in the Anchorage and Juneau offices of Sen. Donald Olson, D-Nome, and the Wasilla office of Rep. Vic Kohring, R-Wasilla.

The Associated Press reports that the offices of Rep. Bruce Weyhrauch, R-Juneau, and Rep. Pete Kott, R-Eagle River, were also part of the raid.

Hmmm... what themes are there here? Five Republicans and one Democrat, three lame ducks (Stevens and Weyhrauch are not running again and Kott just lost the primary), and Southeast, Anchorage, the Valley, and the Bush are all represented.

I really want to know about Donny O. What has the senator from Nome done to land himself in this?

I think Senator Ted Steven's sent an internet, and it was lost. They're just trying to help clear the tubes.
