If this fails he can always sue over the lack of high chairs.
Rep. Dennis Kucinich has filed a lawsuit over a sandwich he bought at a congressional cafeteria.
Kucinich, D-Ohio, bit into an olive pit in a sandwich wrap in April 2008, which he said led to “serious and permanent dental and oral injuries,” according to documents filed with the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.
He’s seeking $150,000 in damages, the court filing says.
A man answering the phone at the Cleveland law office for Andrew Young, Kucinich’s attorney, said “no comment” to USA TODAY when telephoned earlier today.
Kucinich, a liberal who sought the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008, is suing Restaurant Associates, which operates the cafeteria at the Longworth House Office Building, its parent company and two food suppliers.
In the lawsuit, Kucinich alleges that the defendants served him food “that was unwholesome and unfit for human consumption” because it “contained dangerous substances” — an olive pit.
