Bush fetes Stevens as feds investigate senator's remodeling job

Posted by David Postman at 1:55 PM

Sen. Ted Stevens may be feeling some pressure from the federal corruption investigation in Alaska now that the Anchorage Daily News has confirmed the FBI and a federal grand jury are looking at the remodeling of the Stevens home.

But in D.C. he is still a cherished GOP icon. Last week he was the guest of honor at a social dinner at the White House.

The First Lady's office confirmed this morning that the May 23 dinner hosted by President Bush and First Lady Laura Bush was a "social dinner" to honor Stevens' service in the Senate. He is the most veteran Republican member of the Senate.

The office staff was going to forward me the guest list and menu. When I get that I'll add more here.
