    James Trafficant, convicted ex congressman, dies

    AOL.com Article - James Traficant, convicted ex-congressman, dies

    the democrat who did federal time died after a tractor accident. This guy was as funny as he was corrupt, often saying, to no one in particular, "Beam me up Scotty, no intelligent life down here"

    Its ironic he died from injuries incurred in a barn he had built in return for a favor. A favor the businessman later billed Traficant for and received far less that what it cost, according to the article you posted. The businessman ended up testifying against him, which helped send him to the pokey.

    Then he died as a result of injuries incurred in the barn.

    He and Donald Trump apparently had the same hair stylist

    the style was known as "dying mammal collapses on head"

    Omg, how sad that is. I know he was crazy, but there was something about him that I found likable. (yeah, I know. I have a fondness for the strange in humanity )

    When I was really young, I worked as a hair stylist for a few years, and I worked for barber who did that to his hair. It was godawful! Funny thing was, he was a great barber, and had a great dedicated clientele, but his own hair was a disaster.

    He was funny in an odd way with that crazy toupee and outlandish comments, though he seemed fairly intelligent. I always believed he got trounced on pretty hard for his crimes by the Media, public and prosecution.
