Traficant: The Congressman of Crimetown (documentary trailer on Kickstarter)

Is Jim Traficant the #1 target of the FBI or a mobbed-up political pariah that violated his people’s trust? *Features Ed O'Neill 

I understand that everyone's time and money is very limited. I appreciate you taking the time to watch the trailer and read a little about this project. This is a passion that has consumed me over the past 10 years, and I'm on the cusp of a dream coming alive!  

Your support and generosity can propel us over the finish line. Please help spread the good word! 


My producer, Jeff Alberini, and I have been filming off and on since September 2009 when Jim Traficant was released from prison after 7+ years of incarceration. I've funded the project out of pocket up to this point, with Jeff providing all camera/sound equipment. 

While we anticipate ultimately needing more money to complete the project, the desired $25,000 will kickstart our post-production and allow us to complete our final round of interviews.  Any additional resources will be used to acquire expensive news coverage. 


I’ll construct a penetrating examination utilizing unprecedented access to the gangsters, F.B.I. agents and elected officials that survived the bloodiest gangland turf war and political corruption sting in United States history.

sample interviewee list:

Ed O'Neill - Modern Family star and Youngstown native

Congressman Tim Ryan - Traficant's former aid, defeated him for         Congressional seat.
