Govt. seeks to reverse Ted Stevens’ conviction
By DEVLIN BARRETT and NEDRA PICKLER, Associated Press Writers Devlin Barrett And Nedra Pickler, Associated Press Writers – WASHINGTON – Faced with embarrassing revelations about withheld evidence, the Justice Department on Wednesday moved to reverse the conviction of former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens, who lost his bid for re-election just days after a jury found that he had lied about gifts and home renovations. Justice Department lawyers asked a judge to dismiss the indictment against Stevens and toss out his conviction — effectively killing their own courtroom victory with a shocking admission of misbehavior* by prosecutors.
footnote*NOW THAT IS WHAT OUR LOCAL DISTRICT ATTORNEY SHOULD HAVE DONE IN MY CASE, admission of misbehavior, BUT HE IS TOO MUCH OF A COWARD TO CORRECT THE CRIMES THAT OUR LOCAL AUTHORITIES AND THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE DID TO ME AND MY FAMILY. If HE TRIES TO CLAIM NOT TO KNOW ABOUT THIS, THAT WILL BE A LIE.
Dallas County District Attorney Wants Unethical Prosecutors Punished
I recorded my conversation with an investigator with the District Attorney Office. I tried to get them to correct their unlawful actions done to me. Hear how it went down before I met with the DA. I have now discovered that this investigator may be the same person that set me up and Tim Cole (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=94937062 ) as well as Damon Richardson. (Damon is off death row now and may soon be released with a movie to follow.) During this conversation my studio was jammed by a very strange static sound which I did not remove form the conversation you can hear for yourself. Also there was a radio playing that may give audio technicians the time or date of the recording by the news cast heard in the back ground. Hear me get the run around before I met with Matt Powell. They will not face the music for they are cowards. I will continue my fight for JUSTICE.
You WILL HEAR ONLY ONE SIDE OF THE TELEPHONE CONVERSATION…FROM MY SIDE AND THE Detective WILL NOT BE HEARD ON THIS FILE. Again, please allow apologies for the poor quality of this recording it was the only one I had.

But otherwise he simply lies down and lets things happen to him." – George Orwell [Eric Arthur Blair] (1903-1950) British author Source: Inside the Whale, 1940
