Fellow senator testifies to Stevens' integrity

One of Sen. Ted Stevens' oldest friends and peers, a fellow World War II veteran and senator, led the charge Thursday to defend the Alaska Republican's character and integrity. Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, the first defense witness in Stevens' corruption trial, told jurors that fellow senators have "absolute faith" in the 84-year-old Stevens.
