Again, Ted Stevens ignored his oath to the U.S. Constitution. This time he embezzled $28 million from U.S. taxpayers to fund a railroad spur to serve a handful of tourists. "It's years ahead of its time," he stated. That's like saying the Delta Barley Project was years ahead of its time.
When questioned about the economic viability of this corrupt scheme, the fundamental socialist replied with this knee slapper, "It doesn't have to pay for itself. It was a grant from the federal government." Irrefutable evidence that he is intoxicated with spending other people's money.
Stevens' worst nightmare would be a dream that all that money he was spending was his.
