So Busted

Rep. Trey Radel (R-Florida) pleaded guilty in D.C. Superior Court on Nov. 20 to a misdemeanor charge of possession of cocaine. The freshman lawmaker was busted on Oct. 29 after his drug dealer flipped on him following his own arrest. Radel will be on supervised probation for one year and has entered rehab. Florida lawmakers are calling for his resignation.
