Ohio Democrat Rep. Dennis Kucinich Sues U.S. House Cafeteria for Olive Pit in Sandwich

Ohio Democrat Congressman Dennis Kucinich

$150K for dental work – for an olive pit?

Rep. Dennis Kucinich has sued a U.S. House of Representatives cafeteria for selling him a sandwich wrap that caused dental damage when he bit into a pitted olive, according to a Jan. 3 lawsuit filed in Superior Court for the District of Columbia.

The Cleveland Democratic congressman’s lawsuit seeks $150,000 in damages from companies that operate the Longworth House Office Building’s cafeteria.

It says he bought the suspicious sandwich wrap “on or about April 17, 2008,” and eating it caused “permanent dental and oral injuries requiring multiple surgical and dental procedures.”

“Said sandwich wrap was unwholesome and unfit for human consumption in that it was presented to contain pitted olives, yet unknown to plaintiff, contained an unpitted olive or olives which plaintiff did not reasonably expect to be in the food prepared for him, and could not visually detect prior to consumption,” the lawsuit said.

I cannot fathom any dental work that would have to be completed that would cost so much for an olive pit trauma. Maybe an auto accident, but not one or two teeth broken from biting an olive pit. Oh wait, the attorney wants to be paid too and since it is the government, why not?

Between this idiot and former Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Air Force flight expenditures is there any wonder why American voters threw the Democrats out of power in the House?
