Cheeky? Kucinich Sues for 'Oral Injuries' From Errant Olive PitThis incident is simply beyond imagination, the fact that an olive pit could make its way into the mouth of a Member of the House of Representatives is simply unacceptable! Imagine the horror had he ordered a peach!
Kucinich's teeth, prior to his horrific encounter with "The Pit"
Kucinich, who ran for president in 2008, said in a Jan. 3 lawsuit filed in the Superior Court for the District of Columbia that the pit caused "serious and permanent" damage to his mouth and wellbeing.
He said he is entitled to recover damages, "including but not limited to past and future dental and medical expenses, compensation for pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment and other damage."
As a patriotic American, I demand hearings into the circumstances surrounding how this olive pit was "missed", and make certain that those responsible for this "oversight" be subject to the justice of an angry nation. We must ensure that this never happen again and all resources of our government must be brought to bear to that end.
