James Traficant

Ohio congressman, James Traficant, was expelled from the House of Representatives last Wednesday for comitting nine ethics violations. He is currently awaiting federal sentencing for corruption charges.

Surprisingly, it wasn’t for bringing a squirrel into the Capitol building, seen here on his head. I know there are people with bad haircuts and hairpieces in the world–but this guy deserves an award or something.


  1. I read that in his defense he admitted he did his hair with a weed-whacker, but that was no excuse not to give him a fair trial. :-)

  2. You’d think that his wife or kids wouldn’t let him out of the house looking like that. Who does he have for his PR person? Don’t most politicians have image consultants? Or was that the image they were going for? I just want to reach into my computer monitor and grab that mop off his head.
