"Despite rumors, the lame duck congressman decided not to run for a seat in the state of Washington.

"I arrived from Washington on Monday, November 5 to discover that my home had been burglarized and ransacked. The Cleveland Police Department responded promptly and they are investigating," Kucinich said, in a statement on Wednesday.

Cleveland police said nothing was taken, files were scattered around the home and entry was gained through a rear window. The report was filed with the law department.

Kucinich has attracted attention on a variety of issues, outside his work in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Earlier this year, his campaign accused Kaptur’s camp of stealing his campaign signs. He later conceded to her, saying Kaptur “ran a campaign lacking in integrity, filled with false truths.”

In 2011, the former mayor of Cleveland sued a Washington D.C. cafeteria after he said an olive pit in a sandwich caused him dental problems.

His term will expire at the end of the year."

I like this man.. I'm sorry to hear he's still being targeted.. He's a fighter and he takes a great deal of heat and insults because Dennis is his own man..I hope he comes back with a vengeance... Go Dennis!
