James Traficant, American Hero
As of yesterday, a Great American Hero is a free man. James Traficant, a former Democratic Congressman from Ohio, was released from prison. He was expelled from Congress for taking some bribes, cheating on his taxes, and making his Congressional aides work his farm (seriously). He was a staunch opponent of the IRS, so it’s hardly any wonder that he was locked away. But now he’s free. And just in time — we need this great man’s wisdom now more than ever:
His crime? Victimless. His gift to America? Priceless.
