Our weekly roundup of political comings and goings with the Political Junkie is all about money this week: Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK) is under investigation for corruption, and possible presidential candidate Fred Thompson may not have the necessary war chest for a campaign.

Ken Rudin, NPR's political editor, writes the weekly Political Junkie column and contributes to the weekly "It's All Politics" podcast on npr.org

Joel Southern, reporter for Alaska Public Radio Network
