CAPE CORAL, FL – It’s that time again! We’ve got another ‘sorry’ person. This time, it’s Florida congressman, Trey Radel.

“I’m sorry. I have no excuse for what I’ve done.”

Many of you are aware the Feds busted him after he tried to buy cocaine from some undercover agents. He plead guilty, and now, he’s facing a year of probation. The freshman congressman also said he’s an alcoholic and he’s taking a leave of absence to get his life back on track.

“During that time, I’m going to donate my salary to a charity,” said Radel.
