ROCHESTER, Minn. – Former Ohio Rep. James Traficant has been freed from a Minnesota prison after serving seven years for bribery and racketeering.

Traficant, a nine-term Democrat from Youngstown, walked out of the federal prison hospital in Rochester just before 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Traficant, wearing a gray T-shirt, white shorts and white knee-high socks, didn't respond to reporters' questions before stepping into a waiting cab that drove off.

The 68-year-old Traficant now faces three years of probation.

He hasn't indicated if he will retire or try to return to public life.

He had a reputation on Capitol Hill for his wild hair, bellbottom pants and one-minute floor speeches punctuated with the Star Trek comment, "Beam me up.

A true American hero finally comes home. I was thinking of going to his celebration at Mr Anthony's in B man, but my son's school open house wins out. "Are you a good father?" - Jim Rome to LT

Whoa! Where did he get the Canadian tuxedo?

I'm surprised he didn't plead insanity. The man has been walking around with a dead squirrel on his head for 30 years.
