In celebration of the 35th anniversary of C-SPAN, a video clip was shown from the yearly timeline of memorable moments in the House of Representatives. 

Representative Jim Traficant (D-OH) spoke on the House floor on September 29, 1997, using his signature phrase, “Beam me up.” In 2002, the House voted 420-1 to expel Representative Traficant for violation of ethics rules after a felony conviction which sent him to prison for 7 years. He ran again for Congress from prison, winning 15 percent of the vote. close
