Rep.Trey Radel Dope Addict

Rep. Trey Radel, R-Fla., pleaded guilty Wednesday to possession of cocaine and was sentenced to one year of supervised probation.

As a member of Congress, Radel has co-sponsored legislation to change the nation's mandatory minimum drug sentencing laws and voted for a bill that called for states to drug test people who receive food stamps.

Well he doesn't need food stamps, but he only gets supervised probation.

The freshman congressman, who represents a solidly Republican district in southwest Florida.   Radel was elected last year with Tea Party support in the Fort Myers-Naples area district.  He was doing more than sipping tea...

According to USA Today, Radel was caught buying drugs in what official described as a sting operation.  A drug dealer who told law enforcement officials that one of his customers was a member of Congress helped set up a buy and Radel bought the cocaine.
