Traficant: The Congressman of Crimetown
Before Trump, before Bernie Sanders, before anyone - Jim Traficant was the original bombastic populist - but with mobbed up street cred. Traficant was the George Carlin of Congress. He is known for his polyester suits, cowboy boots, vulgar humor and profanity laced rhetoric against the FBI and IRS. He’s also only the second Member of Congress to be expelled since the Civil War.
