TRUMBULL COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - The Mahoning Valley Maverick may have to wait before making his political comeback.

The Trumbull County Board of elections disqualified him from the November ballot, saying he was 107 signatures short on his nominating petitions.

Traficant, who spent seven years in prison for racketeering and bribery charges, says he will appeal.
