Rep. Dennis Kucinich gets a bad bite of sandwich, sues House cafeteria
Updated Jan. 28
Who knew the hidden dangers of the Longworth cafeteria? Rep. Dennis Kucinich is suing the contractor that runs the House office building eatery and a couple of its suppliers -- because of injuries received when he chomped down on a stray olive pit lurking inside his sandwich wrap.
According to documents filed in D.C. Superior Court (first reported by Courthouse News), the Ohio Democrat and former presidential hopeful says he suffered "serious and permanent dental and oral injuries" requiring several surgeries and, well, really hurting a lot. Alleging negligence and breach of implied warranty, Kucinich is seeking $150,000.
