Alaska's Ted Stevens charged with failing to disclose gifts

Sen. Ted Stevens, the longest-serving Republican in the U.S. Senate and one of the chamber's most powerful members, was indicted Tuesday in Washington on charges that he failed to disclose more than $250,000 worth of gifts he received from Alaska businessmen who he then supported on federal issues. . Analysts say the indictment will give Democrats a better shot at wresting another Senate seat from the Republicans.
