Traficant graduated from Cardinal Mooney High School in 1959 and the University of Pittsburgh in 1963. He was then drafted into the NFL in the twentieth round (276th overall) by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1963. Following a brief football career, he obtained a master's degrees from the University of Pittsburgh and from Youngstown State University. Eight years later, he became the executive director of the Mahoning County Drug Program from 1971-1981 and then the Sheriff of Mahoning County from 1981-1985.

While serving as Sheriff, Traficant made national headlines by refusing to execute foreclosure
orders on unemployed homeowners, who were left unemployed by the recent steel mill
closings. This would not only endear him to the local population, but lay the groundwork for his future re-elections.

In 1983, he was charged with racketeering for accepting bribes. Traficant then represented
himself in the criminal trial by arguing that he accepted the bribes as part of an undercover
investigation into corruption. He was later acquitted of the charges, and made national
headlines again for becoming the only person in legal history to win a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) case while representing himself.

This spearheaded his persistent popularity in the 17th District, as he would be elected in 1985,
and re-elected eight times until 2002. However, In 2002 he was again accused, and later
convicted, of bribery following a 2-month trial and sentenced to 7 years in federal prison. He
was later expelled from US Congress on July 24, 2002. Four of the seven witnesses who
testified against him have now recanted claiming they were pressured.

He is the originator of a bill to bring 10,000 troops home to guard our borders against illegal
immigration, drug and human trafficking.
