McCain does me one better on Sen. Stevens’ case

Yesterday, I wrote that the Senate should expel Sen. Ted Stevens if he didn’t do the honorable thing and resign, at least if his appeal is unsuccessful. Today, Sen. McCain indicated he wasn’t particularly interested in the outcome of any appeal: “It is clear that Senator Stevens has broken his trust with the people and that he should now step down. I hope that my colleagues in the Senate will be spurred by these events to redouble their efforts to end this kind of corruption once and for all.” (Reuters)
