Jim Traficant is unwanted by the UAW

Former Congressman and convict Jim Traficant has filed to run to get his old Congressional seat back with a vow to take on the IRS.

As a popular Democrat who could pull support from other Dems, the UAW is not pleased:

“I think we’ve been embarrassed enough…over the past three or four years…as a Valley,” said Jim Graham, president of UAW Local 1112. “We don’t need a further embarrassment by electing someone who’s been in jail.”

This should be fun to watch….
“I bring reason to your ears, and, in language as plain as ABC, hold up truth to your eyes.” Thomas Paine, December 23, 1776
