Traficant is way better than the **** hole that's in the Whitehouse. All Jim did was beat the IRS in court and **** them off. Since then, he was a marked man.
You can't be serious? Did you ever listen to a word out of Traficant's pie hole? The man is just plain stupid! Why do you think he couldn't get enough people to sign his petition? The guy in the white house at least has half a brain. You can't say that about Traficant. You may have another motive for calling the president such a name?? Fess up, partner. Say what you are just itching to say. We're listening.

7 years in prison - he should NOT be able to hold a government office position. Obviously he did not learn anything, he still tried to cheat his way into running. Are there really people lacking the common sense to back this guy? I guess it takes all kinds...

Duh: Unfortunately those in DC usually don't get the prison terms they deserve. Since BO's election a bunch of them have and will quit to avoid their thievery being "outed". Even Traficant is not lower than BO.

Seems like most of the posters on this thread have no clue about what really happened to Jim Traficant.

He was set up by some people in high up places because he was a whistle blower.

Do the research before you comment out of ignorance.

Rev is right. I've known Jim for about 13 years and his integrity has been twisted by the media and the people above his head since he found out about the effects of tryptophan.
