Red alert! Red alert! Dennis Kucinich has detected a threat to his homeland security. No, not a UFO. Kucinich called in DHS to investigate a pesky political opponent who came to his office to complain about the congressman and Democrat presidential candidate’s absence from the district. Seriously. Via the Cleveland Plain Dealer:
Congressman and presidential candidate Dennis Kucinch asked the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to investigate one of his Democratic congressional opponents, Cleveland Councilman Joe Cimperman.
Kucinich, who frequently speaks out against government intrusion, initiated the investigation after Cimperman, a Cleveland councilman, delivered a “missing” poster to his Lakewood congressional office on Jan. 3, according to Cimperman.
Cimperman, who was mocking Kucinich for being on the road campaigning for president, spent less than 30 seconds in the office while a campaign worker filmed him dropping off the poster. A federal agent told Cimperman Tuesday during an in-person interview that the use of the video camera inside the government office was at issue. Cimperman said the agent spent about 10 minutes with him.
Your DHS tax dollars at work.
