Rep. Trey Radel (R-FL), the congressman who pleaded guilty to cocaine possession last week, complained Tuesday that people were “harassing” him as he underwent treatment at a facility in Naples, Fla.
“It really is upsetting,” Radel told reporters as he took a smoke break with a friend outside the Hazeldon Addiction Treatment Center, as quoted by the Naples Daily News. “As I sit here and work on focusing on my family and health with people coming and harassing me.”
Radel wouldn’t divulge further details, according to the newspaper, saying he’d “leave it at that.”
