It turns out that Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is not the only elected official being accused of drug use.

Congressman Henry “Trey” Radel, III, representing southwestern Florida’s 19th District, describes himself on his campaign website as “a husband, a father, an entrepreneur and a Conservative voice in the United States House of Representatives.”

Just how conservative remains to be seen as Radel was arrested on October 29, 2013. Court documents filed in Washington, D.C. today, November 19, 2013, show charges against the congressman that include cocaine possession.

Congressman Trey is a member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and the Committee on Foreign Affairs.

He was an anchor and reporter prior to serving in Congress.  He is married to Amy Wegmann Radel, a former anchor with a local Fox News station in Florida.  The couple have one child, Jude Radel.

On his U.S. House of Representatives webpage it is noted that Congressman Radel and his wife founded the U.S. Forces Fund, a non-profit which provides assistance veterans.

The Congressman is not new to the world of scandal.  In the spring of 2012 the Tea Party candidate who was backed by Rep. Connie Mack, was criticized for a scandal that became known as “Domain-gate.”  The story was that Radel’s campaign staffers had purchased web addresses related to his GOP rivals and created sites which then denounced Radel’s opponents.

Radel is scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday, November 20, 2013.
