WASHINGTON — Federal prosecutors in Washington are scrutinizing Sen. Ted Stevens' home remodeling project as part of a spinoff of an Alaska corruption investigation that has led to charges against lawmakers and contractors.

Until recently, the Alaska Republican appeared to be a peripheral figure in a broad Justice Department investigation into bribery, extortion and other corruption.

But Stevens, the longest-serving Republican in Senate history, recently hired lawyers and said the FBI told him to preserve documents. Prosecutors have questioned his friends and associates, including in some cases before a Washington grand jury, according to someone familiar with the case who spoke on condition of anonymity because grand jury matters are secret by law.

All the military contracting and oil in Alaska and they are investigating a home remodeling project? That is like charging Capone with income tax evasion. Handy, but not the crime - if any.
