Give Trey Radel credit.
As much credit as you can give a congressman who was caught purchasing cocaine from an undercover police officer, that is.
A day after news of Radel's drug possession arrest went public, the Florida politician accepted full responsibility for his actions and announced in a press conference that he is taking a leave of absence.
"I have no excuse for what I've done," Radel told reporters Wednesday. "And I'm not gonna sit here trying to make any excuses for what I've done. I let down our country, I've let down our constituents, I've let down my family, including my wife and even though he doesn't know it, I've let down my 2-year-old son."
