ALASKA SENATOR TED STEVENS was convicted on SEVEN COUNTS OF CORRUPTION related to Senate disclosure forms he submitted (click here for the whole article)

“Despite being a convicted felon, he is not required to drop out of the race or resign from the Senate. If he wins re-election, he can continue to hold his seat because there is no rule barring felons from serving in Congress.”

So, convicted felons lose their voting rights, except when they live in Washington and vote on legislation?!?!?!? WHAT?!?!?!?!
