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.
