Traficant's Style

Former Congressman Jim Traficant (D-Ohio) was released from prison yesterday after serving seven years on charges of bribery and racketeering. A lot has changed in the political universe since Traficant entered prison. One thing hasn't changed: Traficant's style. Granted, you don't have the best clothing available to you while sitting in federal prison, but still--this is what he wears out of prison? Yes, I'm talking clothes and no, I never talk about what someone's wearing. I guess we can be thankful his hair is a little more tame than when he went in...

I used to come from school and watch him give his famous special order speeches on CSPAN. He was hilarious! Kind of a conspiracy nut, but he sure made the House of Representatives fun to watch.
