Prosecution in Ted Stevens trial calls its first witnesses

Veco employees testified today in the trial of Senator Ted Stevens that they spent hundreds of hours working on his Girdwood home.  A bookkeeper with the company also testified that she was instructed not to keep a paper-trail on expenses in Girdwood.  The government is building its case in federal court that Senator Stevens took hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of gifts – including the house renovation – and didn’t report them on his Senate Financial Disclosure forms.
