Retired agent Joe Bushner reviews his investigation of Congressman James Traficant, who was indicted on 10 charges, including bribery, racketeering and tax evasion. This was the second time Traficant was charged with being corrupt. Although not a lawyer, Traficant, a colorful public official known for his outrageous behavior and language, represented himself during both federal trials. The first trial, when he was a county Sheriff, resulted in an acquittal. Joe Bushner’s case resulted in a conviction and an eight-year prison sentence.
