Bungling the Ted Stevens Case Didn't Make the Feds Gun-Shy, Justice Department Says

Ontario, Calif.--

Critics are complaining that the melt-down of the prosecution of the late U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens has led the Justice Department to be "gun-shy" in going after Members of Congress, resulting in a number of federal legislators--including U.S. Rep. Don Young (R.-Alaska)--getting off the hook. The Department of Justice has denied that federal prosecutors have lost any of their nerve in bringing charges against Members of Congress. You can read all about it here in the article by Charlie Savage in the New York Times.
