Thumbs Down on Traficant Appeal

Described as being known for his "flamboyant speeches" and "unkempt hair", former U.S. Representive James Traficant's appeal to the United States Supreme Court is not going to be heard. Traficant was appealing his 2002 conviction on bribery and racketeering charges that also ousted him from the House of Representatives. See Traficant v. United States, No. 04-685. Mr. Traficant's fate is listed on page 6 of the January 10, 2005 orders issued by the United States Supreme Court. One line and you're gone. Unkempt hair, indeed.
