Publisher's Summary

How the Washington sausage really gets made: a brutally honest, outrageous memoir by former GOP congressman Trey Radel.
In 2013, when Washington, DC, law enforcement learned that Trey Radel, then a Republican congressman from Florida, had bought cocaine, he quickly became the target of a police sting. In October of that year, Radel was arrested for attempting to buy cocaine from an undercover cop and subsequently became the subject of intense media coverage and scrutiny. When Radel resigned in 2014, he left with insider knowledge that remains unknown to most American citizens.
Democrazy is Radel's candid account of the making of a modern political star and the inner workings of Congress. In his memoir, Radel recounts his early days as a TV news reporter and radio show host before running for Congress in 2012, a decision that would launch the infamous new chapter of his life. Radel entered the political sphere with the same ideological fervor of most first-time politicians - he loved America and wanted to serve his country and its people. But Radel's optimism waned as he witnessed the wheelings and dealings of Congress' most powerful members.
Told with humor and irreverence, Radel's memoir is an entertaining, fascinating journey of an unlikely politician.

Great book

What a great story to listen to. It was also nice to have Trey narrate his book. This book will open your eyes to the behind-the-scenes of Washington DC with a freshman Congressman. Trey also opened up his personal life from the beginning to the personal demons he had to face. Trey is back on the radio in Fort Myers, FL talking Politics on Fox 92.5.
