Jim Traficant has a very long history of serving the Mahoning Valley. I for one think, and I suspect the majority of people in this area, he was railroaded. I also suspect that the motivation to recoup his pension is not about money, it's about spoiling any potential political plans he may have when he gets out.

Mayor Williams deserves to be recognized as a competent and capable leader. It was disrespectful to snub him and it shows Obama's contempt for those that don't tow the liberal democrat party line. Barrack Obama is Malcom X redux.

It's a vauge reference only, but Youngstown has had the worst homicide per capita rate of any American city in the past and may get that dubious title again in the near future at the present rate. DC political pundents took notice of this long ago. Youngstown, Ohio is a templete for the ailing American city.
Why was it relevenat to mention his former political party affiliation? I'll bet you a bottle of the finest highland scotch that if he'd been a democrat, it would of gone unmentioned.

The Vindicator is just another biased news source like all the others. They all fawned over John McCain when he played the role of "thorn in the side" of his fellow republicans, but will now declare open season on the man as a presidential candidate.
He will be the next president. Obama has revealed his true self,a reicarnation of Malcom X. Hillary Clinton has way too many skeletons. Way to much luggage. Just ask Vince Foster.
