Vindy web page puts Traficant history at your fingertips

By Todd Franko (Contact)

Published August 28, 2009

Many of us will wish and hope Jim Traficant a long life in retirement and out of public life.
Others will wish for him to have an active life in politics.
And others just won’t wish at all — except to not hear anything.
Regardless of what’s to come Traficant, what has been has been historic and legendary — the good, the bad and the ugly.
The Vindicator staff has worked hard the last few weeks to compile what we think is the most comprehensive web site on Jim Traficant:
The mafia recordings.
Historic photos.
YouTube video links.
A 1983 Vindicator page with the mafia tapes transcripts.
Recent and archived stories.
Plus much more ...
In addition to all of this, we’ve created a text alert system for you to log into vindy.com and be alerted via your cell phone with the latest Traficant news.
It’s all on vindy.com and it’s set to go now.
You can find it at www.vindy.com/traficant

This is fantastic!!!!!! I've been building a collection of bookmarks and the links over the years I've seen some here that I've I missed Itt should be mandatory reading for everybody in the Valley to look back at the history and remember this suffering and to never put this guy back in office!!!

Is bad enough that these morons are having a party to welcome back, a convicted felon we are the laughing stock of the entire country

GOOD JOB!!!! Tod Franco

".The question now is, will Jim Traficant slip silently into the background or will he not. Jim has long contended that there was a government vendetta against him stemming from his victory against the government in a bribery “scandal” in 1983. Will ex-Rep. Traficant be a colossal burr under the saddle for those he felt gave him the shaft or will he diminish into the west. Considering his pre-conviction status as a firebrand “beam me up Scotty” and all that, personally I hope he “beams” down, puts a big ole honkin’ spoon in the pot and stirs vigorously. Warp speed Jim. I don’t agree with all Jim Traficant stood for in the House, but he was no tap dancer. He called ‘em like he saw ‘em. Welcome back to society Jim, live long and prosper."

Before heading to jail, Traficant said, “When I get out I will grab a sword like Maximus Meridius Demidius and as a gladiator I will stab people in the crotch.”

Wonder who will get it first?
