The Florida Republican congressman who was busted for possession of cocaine in November will return to his day job on Capitol Hill next week.

Rep. Trey Radel, who finished a stint in rehab late last month, is expected back in Washington when the House returns next Tuesday evening, according to a source familiar with his plans.

Radel pleaded guilty Nov. 20 to possession of cocaine, and has been on a leave of absence from Congress since then. He retreated to a Naples, Fla., drug rehabilitation center for just shy of a month, and emerged vowing to "begin this process of rebuilding your trust and doing what you elected me to do."
