Federal agents searching the home of a Republican senator from Alaska seemed especially interested in cases of wine stored in the house. That's according to an attorney briefed on Monday's raid of Senator Ted Stevens' home in Alaska.
He said investigators photographed individual wine bottles as well as cases of wine, as they carried out the search as part of a public corruption probe.
The Stevens, 83, the longest-serving Republican in Senate history, is under federal investigation for any ties to a contractor who pleaded guilty to bribing state lawmakers. The Justice Department probe has led to charges against Alaskan state lawmakers and contractors.
Last year, the FBI raided the offices of several lawmakers, including Stevens' son. Neither the U.S. senator, nor his son, has been charged.
