Dennis the Legal Menace

One-time presidential wanna-be Rep. Dennis Kucinich is suing the company that runs the House cafeteria for injuries he allegedly sustained when he bit into a sandwich containing an olive pit.  According to the Plain Dealer, he’s seeking $150,000 for the ”permanent dental and oral injuries requiring multiple surgical and dental procedures” he suffered from the cafeteria’s alleged mistake.Perhaps this is part of his planning for his post-Congressional life, as rumor has it his seat could disappear after the next redistricting.
