Was Senator Stevens a victim of election year misconduct by the Justice Department?

According to this report, Sen. Ted Stevens of Alaska may have lost his Senate seat because of prosecutorial misconduct at his trial. One has to wonder whether this was another way to unseat a Republican senator. Time will tell whether Stevens' guilty verdict will be overturned, but it is very unusual for an FBI whistleblower to come forward alleging misconduct by his fellow agents after a trial. One of the witnesses also recanted his testimony. Incredibly, the whistleblower alleges that one of the FBI agents engaged in the same illegal behavior that Sen. Stevens was on trial for.
