Ensign On Stevens: 'No One Is Above The Law'

In a statement, Sen. John Ensign,  head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, weighs in on the Ted Stevens verdict:

"This is a sad day for the United States Senate. Ted Stevens served his constituents for over 40 years and I am disappointed to see his career end in disgrace. Sen. Stevens had his day in court and the jury found he violated the public’s trust - as a result he is properly being held accountable. This is a reminder that no one is above the law."
