Senate Aide's Disclosure Shows No Payments From Stevens

Stevens' office offered a vague denial of wrongdoing:

Stevens' spokesman, Aaron Saunders, said in an e-mailed statement: "As the former chairman of the Senate Ethics and Rules Committees, Senator Stevens has vast knowledge and experience with the Senate rules. He has long-standing office policies that are consistent with these rules, including personally compensating staff members for performing tasks that are outside their official duties."
