Rep. Trey Radel Busted In Cocaine Sting

The Florida Republican and former TV newsman was caught buying drugs as part of a federal investigation into a Washington, D.C., drug ring last month and is being charged with cocaine possession, according to a senior Drug Enforcement Administration official. He worked as an anchor at WINK Fort Myers-Naples, Fla., and was a conservative radio talk show host before being swept into office with Tea Party support.
