Traficant Update

It’s been a month since I’ve written about James Traficant, the once and possibly future Congressman and convicted felon. Mr. Traficant has been in the news in the last week, though. First, he announced a location for his proposed Indian Casino. Mr. Traficant’s company, Traficant Co. LLC, has an option to purchase a 72-acre parcel in Lordstown (in Trumbell county, near Youngstown).

There are a few obstacles standing in the way of Mr. Traficant’s casino. There are no recognized native American tribes in Oho. And the casino will have to be approved by lots of levels of government. But Mr. Traficant has never let obstacles bother him.

Meanwhile, tomorrow is the deadline for Mr. Traficant to file papers and run as a Democrat or Republican in the Ohio Congressional primary. Mr. Traficant is apparently considering running in the 6th and 17th congressional districts in Ohio. The primary itself is schedule for May 4th. If Mr. Traficant announces tomorrow, I’ll let you know.
