Alaska Republicans re-elect Don Young to Congress
Corrupt Congressman awaiting indictments
Alaska Congressman Don Young, under multiple criminal investigations for bribery and extortion, has been re-elected by Republican voters.
The AP declared Young the winner today over Democratic opponent, Ethan Berkowitz. With all but about 30,000 absentee votes counted, Young leads Berkowitz 51 to 45 percent.
Adding to the pile, Don Young's Former Aide Mark Zachares has pleaded guilty to corruption and is expected to testify against him. And Young's campaign manager, Steven Dougherty, is also under criminal investigation.
Yet the Republicans still voted him into office for his 18th term.
