From Roll Call
Undeterred in the face of a federal corruption probe, Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) is hosting a small klatch of top lobbyists and others this weekend for a fishing and fundraising trip to his home state.
The getaway, billed as the âTed Stevens El Capitan Fishing Event,â combines âthree days of some of the best salt water fishing you will ever have,â according to the invite, with a fundraising reception expected to net at least $2,300 per person for the Senatorâs re-election campaign.
Apparently, lobbyists must fly into Seattle or Anchorage and then take a boat or a float plane to get to the El Capitan Lodge on the remote Prince of Wales Island. On top of their donation for accommodations, fishing and meals, participants pay $2,500 to rub shoulders with Stevens at the El Capitan.
