In Anchorage, oil man Bill Allen said in court today that part of his plea deal with the feds included helping them investigate Sen. Ted Stevens. The Anchorage Daily News political blog has that and more from the corruption trial of former state Rep. Vic Kohring.
Also, from the courtroom, former Daily News editorial page editor Michael Carey is providing commentary, including this from a column slated to run tomorrow:
As a legislator, Vic displayed minimal brain power and an unwillingness to learn. He mastered a few conservative slogans before he entered the Legislature and that was the extent of his knowledge. He was prepared to give the oil companies hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks because he self-righteously and piously believed oil industry good, government bad.
I have watched the Alaska Legislature for 40 years. Vic Kohring is the only lawmaker I have ever seen who learned nothing during his years of service. He was the same person the day he departed as the day he entered.
