Does anyone here remember James Traficant?
« on: February 15, 2013, 08:42:21 PM »
Ge was a Democrat from Ohio who went to jail for a lot less than the Chicago mobsters in charge today have done. I assume it was because he didn't tow the party line too well during the Clinton years. here is one of his amusing one minute quotes:
WHITE HOUSE NOT ONLY INSTITUTION TRASHED

January 31, 2001
Mr. Speaker, graffiti on the walls, furniture destroyed, doors glued shut, garbage in refrigerators. Sounds like Animal House, but I am talking about the Clinton White House. Now if that is not enough to wax your windows, former President Clinton has said, and I quote, he wants "a complete and thorough investigation into this crime at the White House." Beam me up.

This is the same President that wanted no investigation into Chinese Communist cash being funneled to the Democrat National Committee, and we let him get away with it. Unbelievable.

Mr. Speaker, the White House was not the only American institution that was trashed. The Clinton administration not only trashed, they shredded our Constitution. I yield back the garbage at the former Clinton White House.

More can be found here,he said some pretty profound things and he definitely saw the righting on the wall!!

James Traficant; SPEAKS LOUD AND CLEAR 6 of 13

Maybe he just wasn't left wing enough for the Democrats?

I also think his signature hair do may have been a little to "Christian Fundamentalist" for the people in his party.  But in Traficant's defence the Fed Prison PO-POs discovered that he was just wearing a rug when he went to live at the big house.

As the title of the link suggests I think that James Traficant also spoke too loudly and too clearly for the leadership of the Democrat Party.
