Republican, Alaska (1973-present)
Don Young has been identified as "United States Representative A" in federal documents filed in conjunction with the sentencing of Bill Allen, a key figure in the corruption probes in Alaska against Sen. Ted Stevens.
Young is being charged with illegally receiving gifts totaling nearly $200,000 over thirteen years from VECO Corporation, the now-defunct oil field services company.
Young has been under federal investigation for more than two years, but has denied any wrong doing and has repeatedly refused to talk about the matter.
Right now, there is no House Ethics Committee investigation of Young, and it is unclear whether a preliminary probe is being undertaken.
