It has even been discussed on national TV that a rouge Tea Party group in Traficant's area is supporting him. Don't be fooled by this garbage. Any group that would support him would only prove that part of Ohio is the most corrupt. This is a bogus Tea Party group formed by liberals to confuse voters, and the folks in Youngstown seem to be fooled easily.

He is right man to run and play at tag around Capitol Hill. He's playing the same tune as anthony in Franklin County BoE. If Ohioans have that judges who believe he/she does his/her best thinking while doing chores on his/her farms where he/she raises black angus cattle or horses. He/she says there is a clarity to life in the country. There is no pomp and circumstance, just the green fields of L/C counties, a gaggle of grandkids that call him/her "papa" or "ma-mi" and a herd of angus or tasted liquor that know him/her as the guy with the hay or DUI driver.

Shame on you abusers and violators the Ohio Constitution. One of 12 congressional district of Ohio, incumbent, aide to jew and convert jew who was 10 years a catholic now is roman-catholic but is a lector of St. John the Baptist catholic church. Who is moron in this relation to religion?. he was assistant to runner for gov. but he did not get right style to conduct a congressman duties. This realtor, puddle of strong heavy drinker of TX, journalist with cheating methods of osu and player the trumpet method of sale fraudulent foreclosure houses does have a civil courage and step aside. Therefore, today Ohioans tell you all swines: enough is enough and Ohioans count on yours dignity with integrity calling for GOGO on farms, you violators of the Ohio Constitution, no lawmakers but kidsmakers and preyers on wrongs ordinary Ohioans.
You have to develop private pryed businesses you pseudo congressmen. Shame, shame, shame OUT!OUT!

Have we already forgot how we STILL stand on the brink of another DEPRESSION?? True, we are TRYING to come back, but the ''ILK'' which caused the problems is patiently in the wings again trying to work their magic to put America right back to where we are fighting to survive from !! Of course,,We the ''SHEEPLE" willl gladly once more vote against our own best interests to allow these people to regain power !! I hope not !! "J"

I was happy to hear that Jim Trafficant is running again now that he is out of "The Joint". I may consider donating money from out of state if he'll take it.-You don't have to vote for him, but I'm glad that he is running. Welcome back Jim!
