November 21, 2013

To the editor: Trey Radel is just a hired hand like everyone else. He works for, and at the behest of the people of the 19th Congressional District of SW Florida....

In his statement Mr. Radel said he saw this incident as an opportunity to get clean. What happened to the years of opportunity leading up to his asking for the voters trust? His alcohol and drug addiction didn’t happen overnight. Mr. Radel disgraced the nation, his supporters and his family. He let everyone down who trusted him to do the right thing. It’s time now for him to turn his life around and do what is right for the people of his district; resign. Mr. Radel is not guilty of a simple indiscretion; he made multiple purchases of an illegal narcotic. In other words he’s a repeat offender. This was a conscious decision on his part and he knew he was breaking the law. We have enough crooks in DC, SWFL shouldn't be the source for yet another.

I love the way everyone says to feel for his family. Yes, the little boy stands a chance of living a life like other children in the home of an addict and a miscreant.

I remember the slick ads Amy laid on the voters proclaiming his goodness and trust worthiness. She knew he was a lying snake and living the addict's life. She is a liar too. She worked for Fox for Gods sake.

Radel admitted on radio he left journalism because rigor of journalistic ethic. He was snatched up by the owners of WNOG and now WFSX-FM as a hired liar to mislead the audiences with the Right Wing Crony Capitalism.

They even used is journalism training to do fake news in combo with WINK TV (same dishonest FCC abuser by a "lack of candor."

He is a slimy hypocrite that will take every cent he can get out of this, health care and government dole, all those things he has spoken, campaign and voted against.

Radel is your classic rotten apple spoiling the whole.

In addition, it has been reported that Trey attended a "fund raiser" $1,000 a plate shortly after having been arrested for possession, etc. Although I am sympathetic to what he and his family are facing, I am afraid I am more concerned for our part of the world.

Who gave us Radel? A political party that ran panting to support the guy who used taxpayer funds to commit adultery with his South American mistress. The party whose chief radio spokesman is a drug addicted moron who has had more wives than some have had underwear. The party with a ******e from the great north who can’t remember anything without referencing her hand…not to mention the family values she taught her daughter. The party who gave us a presidential candidate who visited the hospital to tell his cancer riddled wife he had a new girlfriend. Another (Ricky from Texas) who couldn’t remember what he’d do if elected. And don’t forget the congressman who had a habit of toe-tapping in airport bathroom stalls. You guessed it. It’s the party of “family values” who preach to us about their core conservative Christian values. Now add the name of Trey Radel to the list. Perhaps the problem is deeper than Radel, maybe it’s a systemic problem. Do you see a pattern?
