Alleged VECO Connection Could Deal a Major Blow to the Republican Party

The shocking indictment of Republican Senator Ted Stevens could hurt the Republican party’s election prospects, and deal a major blow to the country’s efforts to produce more domestic oil.

Here is a quote from Press:

“Stevens is the single most prominent advocate of oil drilling in protected areas, and charges that he took more than a quarter-million dollars worth of unreported gifts from oil services contractor Veco Corp. and its executives will play right into Democratic efforts to paint Republicans as a party captive to Big Oil”.
