In Today's Post: Stevens Told to Keep Records for Graft Probe

Capitol Briefing blogger Paul Kane had the following front-page story in today's Washington Post:

Sen. Stevens Told to Keep Records for Graft Probe

"Sen. Ted Stevens, the longest-serving Republican in the Senate, disclosed in an interview that the FBI asked him to preserve records as part of a widening investigation into Alaskan political corruption that has touched his son and ensnared one of his closest political confidants and financial backers.

"Stevens, who is famous for bringing home federal earmarks for Alaska when he was Appropriations Committee chairman, was not previously known to be linked to the Justice Department's probe, which has uncovered evidence that more than $400,000 worth of bribes were given to state lawmakers in exchange for favorable energy legislation."

If Stevens Were A D:
1. This would be splashed all over Faux News and be re-run every 15 minutes. The total lack of any substance would provide no hindrance to inference and speculation. They would find footage of Stevens in a situation that makes him look like the target of an investigation.
2. Various right wing nutcases would show up here and demand that Stevens resign immediately. And go on to say that this proves all D's are crooks blah, blah, blah.

Anyone want to take a stab at #3?

Front page, solo byline - congratulations Mr. Kane. Now all that you have left to do is bring down a sitting president...
