Wev Shea spoke about the trial and conviction of Former Senator Ted Stevens on corruption and fraud charges. He was critical of prosecutors who had allegedly withheld evidence and misled the court in the proceedings. He also spoke about Alaska politics and the degree to which money and currying favors was part of the political culture in the state.
