McCain, Palin ask Stevens to step down from Senate

Wasting no time to separate his presidential campaign from what he described as the "corruption and insider dealing that has become so pervasive in our nation's capital," Sen. John McCain and his runningmate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, called Tuesday for Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens to step down from the Senate. A jury convicted Stevens Monday of failing to report thousands of dollars in freebies.
