God I'm gonna miss that guy.
Congress just got a lot duller.
Did anyone see him on CSPAN?

The man got a bad deal. I'm from the district next to Traficant's and followed his trial closely. The judge admitted hearsay testimony and other illegal evidence that should have been excluded. He got the modus up-his-end-i. His wrongful conviction and expulsion from congress was the last testimony of the destructive fury of a vengeful Janet Reno.

I did not follow the trial as closely as you did, but I know that Richard Detour guy came forward and said he was asked to lie to get a case against Traficant.

Did you see when he was about to take his seat before the ethics committee, he was talking to someone in the crowd behind him, he bent over and turned his butt to face the committee..lol! I know he did that shit on purpose hee hee heee!!

Guy was pretty cool.

I hope he wins the election.

I saw his final appearance on the House floor the day the Congress voted to expel him.
He was warned to stop using profanity and stop addressing members of Congress by their first names.
All in all it was a very tame performance by his standards.

I think the guy did it, but in a way my heart goes out to the guy with all he's going through, self-caused though it may be. I've always said, if you're going to be an asshole, at least be an entertaining asshole.
And he was.

Thanks James Traficant.
Thanks for keeping it real in the US congress.
I can just hear him now, "Beam me up, Mr. Warden!"
