Susan Collins Linked to Indicted Senator

Collins Watch reports that Senator Collins received $10,000 from the PAC of recently indicted Ted Stevens of Alaska and in turn gave him $5,000 through her own committee.

Elizabeth Dole became the first Senator to dump his money, earlier today.

UPDATE: Sent an email to the Collins campaign. No word yet.

FURTHER UPDATE: The Maine Democratic Party hits Collins for the contributions in a release, and notes that the amount is actually $20,000 if a contribution from a previous year is counted.

UPDATE x3: Collins is ditching the money.
