U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich, the Democratic former Cleveland mayor and failed presidential hopeful, is suing a number of entities affiliated with the operations and supplying of the cafeteria inside the Longworth House Office Building. The problem? Per Gawker, a sandwich wrap he bought—three years ago—had an unpitted olive inside.
According to his legal complaint, filed in D.C. Superior Court:
As a result of consuming said unfit and unwholesome food, plaintiff sustained serious and permanent dental and oral injuries requiring multiple surgical and dental procedures and has sustained other damages as well, including significant pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment
He’s seeking $150,000.
