Rep. Dennis Kucinich says his house in Cleveland was ransacked

Posted: 5:03 PM

CLEVELAND - Longtime U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich says his Cleveland home was broken into this week.

Kucinich lost to fellow Democrat and incumbent Marcy Kaptur, who was re-elected Tuesday, during the primary in March. 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.

2. How awful for him and his wife.

Being invaded like that makes you feel very vulnerable.

I am sorry to hear this.

10. Seattle Democratic office broken into. AR candidate comes home to find the family pet killed and

left for his children to see on the porch as they arrived back from church to cause them pain and fear after his GOP opponent told his house address on the radio. Nothing to see here folks, move along.

8. And where better to start than the ideological brain trust of the party?

While I don't doubt that whoever did this matches the intellect of G. Gordon Liddy, I just can't see them gaining anything more valuable than a white paper on chemtrails. While I try not to underestimate the stupidity of the GOP, it's just hard to imagine this coming from anyone higher in rank than James O’Keefe.

6. The reaction of a two year old

would be to break a toy and scream. That's what we have here.

If they just scattered papers and made a general mess, it is definitely intimidation by some disgruntled person/s. Also, if it was done by an angry person or mob, there would be massive damage in terms of personal investment in the damage. If it's just throwing stuff around, breaking lamps and mirrors knocking over furniture, they were probably hired to do it.
