So he can run for office but he can't vote, what a country. Those idiots in Y-Town might just elect him.

What do you mean, can't vote? Obammy is changing that law so felons can vote. He needs the felons, and illegal aliens to overcome the overwhelming numbers Americans coming out to vote aganst the Democrats in November.

Democrats and Republicans = Zionist tools!

You sheep are too blind and too ignorant to see the truth.

Jim Traficant is demonized, because he speaks the truth about Zionism and the stranglehold they have on the US.

AIPAC is the biggest most influential lobby in Washington, for a reason!

I dont see any reason he shouldnt be in Congress with rest of the criminals and theives
I agree. Traficant is no worse than MOST of the scum we have that represents us in Congress. The only thing differant is HE GOT CAUGHT>
What about Chris Dodd who took special home mortgage as the Senior Member of the Financial Committee? John Murtha was on an FBI tape.
Come one Traficant's worse crime is his hairpiece.

No doubt Traficant was guilty of his crimes and he paid for it with many years in prison. It is interesting that all of the govt star witnesses that testified against him all pela-bargained for reduced sentences. But, at least Jim served his time for his misdeeds. What about Nancy Pelosi, harry Reid, Chris Dodd, Barney Fwank, or the ultimate scuzball, the late Ted Kennedy. He killed a woman and Daddy's deep pockets kept him from prison. When you get past Jimbo's "eccentricities", he has some very good ideas. And, no doubt, when he was Congressman, he brought many dollars back to the area. He is really an old style democrat that would just try to get the little guy an even break.
How True! Pelosi, Reid, Dodd and Frank have done way more than Traficant. AND YES, Ted Kennedy killed someone. Jimbo went against the grain of the libs running the DemocRATic party and he paid for it. He paid his dues.
Let him alone. If he gets elected good for him. I find him with more character than Obama, Pelosi or Reid.

What about Charlie Rangel. Oh yeah. he forgot about his properties, tax statements, free lobbyist trips amoung many other serious breach of judgement.
He is elected and reelected by idiots of his district. This s*** needs to stop.

Traficant is a real Democrat, not like the scum that passes for Democrats today. I bet he gets elected.

Convicted felons have no place in the government of this country. We have too many politicians like this one already, this is just one who got caught. He needs to stay where he is.

And when the electorate sees a dishonest politician, Republican or Democrat, we should vote the bum or collective bums out. Or make sure in Traficant's case that he doesn't get back to DC.
