Farming can be dangerous….
Check it out:
Former Rep. James A. Traficant Jr. died Saturday as a result of a farming accident earlier in the week.
The Ohio Democrat in 2002 became only the fifth person in history to be expelled from the House, after he was convicted on federal bribery and racketeering charges. Three were kicked out for siding with the South during the Civil War.
Traficant was 73.
He was gravely injured Tuesday when a tractor flipped over on him at his family’s farm, near Youngstown, Ohio.
