"Secret Hold" Senator: Ted Stevens

With speculation continuing to build today, Republican Senator Ted Stevens has admitted through his staff that he was the senator who placed the anonymous hold on the pending bill which would allow American citizens to research spending in the federal budget via the Internet.

Stevens has a reputation for never having met a piece of pork he didn't like, most (in)famously the "Bridge to Nowhere".

Thursday Update: Stevens did not act alone. Democrat Senator Robert Byrd, the King of Pork, has admitted that he also placed an anonymous hold on this bill.

Byrd has released the hold as "there has been time to better understand the legislation."

And time to better understand that, thanks to the Internet, his days of secret parliamentary maneuvers may be over.
