Flamboyant, outspoken, corrupt, and probably insane ex-representative from Ohio James Traficant was released from a federal resort…err, prison today, after serving seven years for obstruction of justice, tax evasion and bribery.
The Democrat has maintained his innocence all through his incarceration, and once even went on a hunger strike for almost three hours, until he was informed that lunch that day would include salmon au gratin and a nice Riesling wine.
Traficant left the facility dressed in short pants, tennis shoes, and white knee-high socks. However, Traficant’s toupee is being held for an extra six months for bad behavior. “He ratted me out” the toupee said in a jailhouse interview.
