Congressman Trey Radel is back in Washington after taking time off to deal with his cocaine problem. Using that stuff is illegal and the job of those in Congress is to write laws. So one wonders if perhaps there isn’t something missing from Radel’s statement of public regret as reported by Ledyard King in USA Today:
"I do look forward to getting back to work with a much clearer head and positive thoughts moving forward. I am extremely sorry for the heartache and pain that I've caused personally and professionally, and I'm going to work to make that up. I intend on having a successful year.”
He couldn’t have found a soup kitchen somewhere that needed an extra hand?
