Being an Ex-Convict
Former Congressman, James Traficant (D-OH), was released from federal prison today after serving seven years for racketeering, accepting bribes from businessmen and taking kickbacks from staff members. I hope this has been a warning for all seated congresspersons. Now, we need to reform campaign financing which seems criminal. Mr. Traficant has served his time and I wish him well. I really do. But I do wonder if he's gotten a haircut--a crew cut, perhaps? I know...I know...I'm on a roll. But when I saw this photo today I must admit to rolling laughing. God, help me!
