July 2000

This cartoon, from our July 2000 edition, comments on the looming indictment of the late U.S. Rep. James A. Traficant. By this time, it was clear the congressman was a primary target of federal investigators as they built their case layer-by-layer. It was so obvious that the congressman boasted in public that charges were imminent, and vowed to single handedly defend himself, much to his supporters’ delight.
