Update: Liberal Rep Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) Settles Dispute Over Dangerous Olive Sandwich

(By Meredith Jessup, The Blaze) - After making headlines this week for accusing a congressional cafeteria of selling him a “dangerous” sandwich, Congressman Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, released a statement today announcing his lawsuit seeking $150,000 in damages had been settled.

“Though I would prefer to focus your attention on my work dealing with the profoundly important issues that face our nation, such as job creation, getting the economy back on track, and ending the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq,” Kucinich said, “it seems that some are more interested in discussing my personal dental issues.”

After inadvertently chomping down on a pitted olive, the congressman described the pain as “excruciating,“ but insists he was a trooper who ”went right back to work.”
