Fire This Congressman

No, not President Obama and every single Democrat. Although they deserve it, I am talking about this guy:

Trey Radel, a Florida Republican elected in 2012, will be in court Wednesday on charges that he possessed cocaine.

Here’s a guy who is a drug abuser and blames alcohol for his drug problems. He almost sounds like a Kennedy.


“I’m profoundly sorry to let down my family, particularly my wife and son, and the people of Southwest Florida. I struggle with the disease of alcoholism, and this led to an extremely irresponsible choice. As the father of a young son and a husband to a loving wife, I need to get help so I can be a better man for both of them.”

Yes, it was irresponsible and illegal. For his sake and his family’s sake, I hope he resigns pronto to deal with his ‘problems’.  We don’t alcoholic illicit drug users in our party; it’s a big tent but ain’t that big. We have plenty of citizens out there capable of representing half a million other citizens without such issues.
