Prosecutor Brenda Morris, toward the end of her cross-examination of the senator yesterday, settled in for a long discussion about the chair, which Alaska restaurateur Bob Persons bought for Stevens as a gift seven years ago — but which Stevens never reported on his Senate disclosure forms. "And the chair is still at your house?" Morris asked. "Yes," Stevens conceded. ad_icon "How is that not a gift?" "He bought that chair as a gift, but I refused it as a gift," Stevens explained. "He put it there and said it was my chair. I told him I would not accept it as a gift." "Where is that chair now?" "In our house," Stevens repeated. "We have lots of things in our house that don't belong to us, ma'am."The Stevens defense so far rests on convincing a jury that people kept giving him gifts because they liked him a lot. Testifying to that was Colin Powell, who was a character witness for Stevens (maybe someone convinced him Stevens is black?).
