    WASHINGTON (AP) — Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens has been convicted of lying about free home renovations and other gifts he received from a wealthy oil contractor.

    The Senate's longest-serving Republican, Stevens was found guilty on all seven counts of making false statements on Senate financial documents.

    The verdict throws the upcoming election into disarray. Stevens is fighting off a challenge from Democrat Mark Begich and must now either drop out or continue campaigning as a convicted felon.



    One seat closer to 60 in the Senate.
