KTUU Channel 2 (NBC) reports Sen. Lisa Murkowski has asked President Bush to pardon former Sen. Ted Stevens. But, as of Friday, the Department of Justice says no formal application has been filed. KTTU says Murkowski's request "is a reversal of sorts." On December 8, at a joint press conference, both of Alaska's senators said they would not ask Bush for a pardon of Stevens. See story here.
