It's like the entire internet voted for one man.
My first exposure to this glorious individual was about ten or so years ago on CSPAN. When I saw this man with an awful tupee, punctuating his points with "Beam me up!" I knew that this was my type of legislator.
What an odd fellow.
I still have my "Free Traficant" tote bag. Ah, the memories.
"Other than that... I'm feeling fine."
He gets out this September, you know. Can ex-cons be elected back to the house?
I've spent maybe 80-90 hours in Ohio in my entire life, and James Traficant is still My Goddamn Congressman.
I have a feeling like he's going to cry salvation when he gets out of the cage and will immediately get re-elected due to voter boredom.
"He was expelled after being convicted of taking bribes, filing false tax returns, racketeering, and forcing his aides to perform chores at his farm in Ohio and on his houseboat..."
That's what happens when your breakfast consists of Xanax and red wine.

I'll wear a denim outfit. I'll walk in there like Willie Nelson. Combination of John Wayne and Will Smith. Men in Black. James Brown.
The world would be a less interesting place without James Traficant.
Jim Traficant is the only person to ever successfully represent himself against a Federal RICO charge.
