The drug dealer reported a Congressman was one of his clients. Radel was a regular buyer....... not a one-time-try-it guy. Alcoholism does not turn you into a coke-head. It's two different addictions and two different problems.

He needs to resign and not drag his family through this. It will only get worse.

Didn't know u could be cured in 3 weeks?Does a drug dealer have leverage on the buyer?Was it being paid for with our tax money?How many times did he drive his family around under the influence?They should have their kid checked for long term defects.
