The Ted Stevens pity party continues.
The Associated Press reports:
Alaska lawmakers want the U.S. government to apologize to former Sen. Ted Stevens, whose corruption conviction was dismissed this week by a federal judge.
The Alaska House passed a resolution Wednesday calling for the apology to Stevens.
Gov. Sarah Palin, and the state GOP, have both called for a special election to give Stevens the chance to win back his Senate seat, which he lost after being convicted last fall of failing to report hundreds of thousands of dollars in gifts on his Senate disclosure form.
The charges were dropped earlier this week, and the prosecutors on the case are currently being investigated for misconduct.
All we can say is, we must have missed all those resolutions that were passed by statehouses calling for apologies to people who were, say, exonerated by DNA testing after spending years of their lives in prison.
