After the Republicans took control of the House in 1995, Traficant tended to vote more often with the Republicans than with his own party. On abortion, for instance, Traficant voted the pro-life position of the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) 95% of the time in the 105th Congress, and 100% of the time in the 106th and 107th Congresses.

After he voted for Republican Dennis Hastert for Speaker of the House in 2001, the Democrats stripped him of his seniority and refused to give him a committee assignment. Because the Republicans did not assign him to any committee, Traficant became the first member of the House of Representatives in over a century without any committee assignment who was not in a leadership position.

While in Congress, Traficant was a supporter of immigration reduction,[7] and a strong opponent of illegal immigration. In the controversy surrounding the defeat of Congressman Bob Dornan (R-CA) by Democrat Loretta Sanchez, Traficant was the only Democratic member of Congress who advocated a new election, due to possible voting in that race by illegal aliens. Sanchez would later introduce a bill expelling Traficant from the House of Representatives.

You'd vote for someone who was unseated from Congress for criminal bribery and racketeering? And he says his sole reason for why he'd like to go back was to get even with other people who stopped his bilking of the American Public? Really? :(

Taking notes in little diary ...

Trafficant is a disgrace to Congress and he has atrociously bad hair. I wouldn't support him for dog catcher.

I always liked most of what he said. It's rare to find an honest democrat like him.

He was set up. Watch his interview.
Trafficant was set up by Mobsters, Middle easterners, etc. to run for Congress. That's his real set up.
It's also likely why his votes are guaranteed to be anti-semetic and anti-Israel:

Convicted associates of the Pittsburgh Mafia Family, Mafia-corrupted labor Unions and Middle Eastern political operatives are among those who have contributed to the past two re-election campaigns of Congressman James Traficant, an analysis of Federal Election Commission records reveals. These records, which are required filings under Federal Election law, reveal 219 donations by individuals and 212 donations by Unions and Political Action Committees. 47 of the personal contributions came from outside the State of Ohio, with 35 of those from the State of Virginia. 38 are from individuals that indicate a Middle Eastern background of the contributor.
In the Money: James Traficant and his Contributors

His racketeering and paid-for votes are the real scandals, not his bullshit lying to cover his crime-riddled butt.

Take an anonymous survey of his Clientele, I mean, "contributors."
