Alaska Republican Senator Ted "convicted" Stevens trailed by three votes on Wednesday. Democrat Mayor Mark Begich holds a slight lead of 125,019 votes to 125,016. In Alaska, the losing candidate or 10 voters has three days to petition for a recount unless the vote was a tie. Get this: If Stevens wins his seat but faces expulsion, a special election would be held -- and Gov. Sarah Palin has stated she'd be interested in serving that role. Wut wo.
