3. Ted Stevens

At the time he served as a U.S. Senator from Alaska from 1968 to 2009, Ted Stevens had the illustrious title of being the longest-serving Republican Senator in history. Although he would lose that title in January 2017 to Utah Senator Orrin Hatch, on July 29, 2008, he would lose so much more when he was embroiled in a federal corruption trial as he ran for re-election to the Senate.

The charges stem from an investigation by both the FBI and IRS into Stevens extensive remodeling project done at his “chalet” in the small town of Girdwood, Alaska. It was discovered that he had excepted gifts from VECO Corporation, a major player in the Alaskan oil industries’ support, claimed to be worth more than $250,000 and failed to declare them. Which is a felony.

  1. Civilized people are supposed to pave paths for better future of everyone , regardless different racial background. because unity and honest lifts and builds a nation to be strong. while building a nation or a home or a relationship on corrupt minds and corrupt behaviors is like living in rotten homes that will eventually destroy your hopes.
