Former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens dies in plane crash

JUNEAU, Alaska – A plane carrying former Sen. Ted Stevens and ex-NASA chief Sean O'Keefe crashed near a remote fishing village in Alaska, killing the longtime senator and at least four others, authorities said Tuesday.

The crash was a stunning event in a state where Stevens became the most beloved political figure in Alaska history during his 40 years in the Senate, earning a reputation as a tireless advocate for projects that brought millions of federal dollars to the state. He was 86.

Wow--not a way to go...RIP Mr. Stevens.

  • Yea, we are in Alaska and have been following it.... Thoughts and Prayers go out to his family as well as the family members of all who have lost their lives. This has been a hard few weeks here with the C-17 plane crash and now this.

  • Lori, if you're so classy, you should know it's not nice to speak ill of the dead.

    What you said was hateful and you're wrong...The only person who didn't respond with condolences was you. It's not normal to see someones death as an opportunity to bash someone's trash-tastic.

  • CNN confirmed it.

  • We all know you would be dancing in the street is Obama were to die suddenly--your hatred has been made clear, multiple times.

    Your misguided assumption that anyone who isn't a Republican would be snarky is rather presumptuous. As you try to make others believe, it isn't about the party, it is the policy.

    So far, you are the only snark. Congratulations.

    I agree

  • Well, i guess i'll also congratulate Lori on being the first one to post something hateful.

    Answer by UpSheRises at 4:11 PM on Aug. 10, 2010
