(Florida Congressman Trey Radel and) rising Tea Party star was caught in a coke bust. Apparently he forgot the part of the Tea Party story where you dump the product in the harbor before the cops show up.
Personally, I hated to lose a Congressman who was so fiscally conservative that I’m sure he snorted his blow through a one dollar bill. And so committed to family values, folks, that he actually voted to drug test people who received food stamps. He’s not a hypocrite, because he doesn’t get food stamps from the government.
Just his paycheck.

Trey must’ve known the food stamp criticism was coming, because during a press conference that was held after the Colbert taping, he announced a leave of absence—and that he was donating his salary to charity until he came back.
