Is Kucinich worried about not being able to fund his re-election?

January 27, 2011

This article was posted on Overlawyered.com.  I am truly shocked that he is suing for so much when obviously, his GOVERNMENT HEALTH INSURANCE covered his medical and dental costs and I am also sure that the congressional cafeteria is publicly funded….  I’m just saying…

Rep. Dennis Kucinich sues House cafeteria over olive pit in sandwich

by Walter Olson on January 26, 2011

He bit into a sandwich wrap in 2008 and encountered an olive pit, and now he wants $150,000. [Cleveland Plain Dealer, Wonkette, Memeorandum]

P.S. Gawker finds video taken five days later on the House floor in which the Ohio representative “looks fine and talks normal” notwithstanding the “serious and permanent dental and oral injuries requiring multiple oral and dental surgeries.” And Daniel Fisher at Forbes:

No indication why Kucinich mulled this lawsuit for three years before filing it. Or how he plans to get around the District of Columbia statute of limitations on personal injury claims, which could mean he was SOL after only a year.* The lawsuit alleges negligence and breach of implied warranty.

*Commenter “Mattie” says the SOL in DC for this type of suit is indeed three years, though it would be one year for some other torts.

Who besides the People’s Congressman would be willing to name America’s olive pit safety crisis and call out the Big Pit interests responsible.
