Alaska’s senior U.S. Senator was found guilty on all seven counts of lying on his financial disclosure forms. A Washington, DC jury convicted Senator Ted Stevens this afternoon on all charges. The first says Stevens schemed to conceal gifts on his disclosure forms. The rest of the counts break down the charges by year, starting with Stevens’ 2001 form.
