Ted Stevens lied to KTUU reporter
August 29, 2007
By Dennis Zaki - In an interview Tuesday with KTUU televison reporter Bill McAllister, Alaska senator Ted Stevens falsely claimed he never heard a derogatory comment aimed at him (aside from reporters and editors at the Anchorage Daily News) while in Alaska this month on congressional recess.
We have a different story on video (See below).
On August 19th, Ted Stevens was greeted by an angry group commercial fishermen protesting crab rationalization and Stevens' involvement in federal fisheries issues at a luncheon in Kodiak.Stevens, under multiple criminal investigations for corruption, practically ran (if you've seen him walk lately, you know what I mean) into the Kodiak Inn to avoid the protesters.
A van that delivered Stevens from the airport was stuck in the street for 1 minute and 20 seconds before he could get out at the hotel.
The protesters were 25 feet away.
They screamed at him the entire time with slogans like "Racketeer!" "Racketeers go to hell!" "Give us back Alaska!" and "Ted Stevens go home!". Those were the printable slogans we could publish.
He certainly heard them.Alaska fishermen shout at Ted Stevens in Kodiak, Alaska
