    Jim Traficant, the former Ohio congressman who served seven years in prison on corruption charges, has secured the necessary signatures to run for his old congressional seat as an independent, the Youngstown Vindicator reports.

    Traficant Gets Enough Signatures to Appear on Ballot - Washington Wire - WSJ

    This is the guy who received 14% of the vote while in prison.

    Best thing he can do for the country is to take votes away from Pelosi's little boy toy Tim Ryan. Maybe we'll get some fresh blood.....

    Knowing Jimmy, I'm sure there will be more drama before it's over...and maybe even after. This could get very interesting. I don't know how easy it will be for the rest of us to get good coverage, you'll have to keep us posted. :lol:

    Traficant was awesome. There are some funny ass YouTube videos out there of him during his Congressional hearings.
