Before Trump, before Bernie Sanders, before anyone, Jim Traficant was the original bombastic populist, but with mobbed up street cred. Known for his polyester thrift store suits, shock top wigs, vulgar humor and profanity laced rhetoric against the FBI, IRS, and every president since Reagan, Traficant became a local hero in hometown of Youngstown, Ohio and political pariah everywhere else. This documentary follows the notorious politician through his successes and scandals, and showcases the city of Youngstown, which backed him up every step of the way.
