CEO Says Company Employees Did Work On Sen. Stevens' Home

Ex-Veco Corp. CEO Bill Allen admitted in court Friday that he had company employees work several months on a remodeling project at the Girdwood home of U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens.

The former head of the oil field services company made the admission Friday while testifying in the federal corruption trial of a former state lawmaker.
Allen and former Veco vice president Rick Smith in May pleaded guilty to extortion, conspiracy and bribery of legislators.

LSB: Looks like there will be an opportunity for the Dems to pick-up a Senate seat in Alaska. The big question, however, is whether his Republican Senate colleagues will give Stevens the Vitter treatment (standing "O") or the Craig treatment (heave ho!).
