Hillary and Tina cover former US Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska and former Boise, Idaho mayor H. Brent Coles.
Ted Fulton Stevens, Sr. served as a United States Senator from Alaska from 1968 to 2009, making him the longest-serving Republican U.S. Senator in history at the time he left office. But, in 2006, when the FBI and IRS started investigating Stevens’ financial disclosures, things got complicated for the senator.
H. Brent Coles held the mayor’s seat in Boise for 10 years, from 1993 to 2003. During his tenure, he was named president of the United States Conference of Mayors and was also considered by then president George W. Bush to be named the Director, Office of National Drug Control Policy But, when allegations of misuse of public funds come to light, Mayor Coles finds himself stuck in the muck.
