Kucinich’s Brother Found Dead

CLEVELAND (AP) -- The youngest brother of Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich was found dead at his home Wednesday.
Perry Kucinich, 52, was found face down by another brother, Larry, at about 9 a.m., said Powell Caesar, a spokesman for the Cuyahoga County Coroner's office.
There were no signs of foul play, Caesar said. An autopsy was being performed Wednesday to determine the cause of death.
Larry Kucinich had taken his brother shopping Tuesday and then took him home but couldn't get an answer when he tried calling him Wednesday, Caesar said.
Dennis Kucinich took a flight from Washington to Cleveland after learning of the death and was not immediately available for comment, said his office press secretary, Natalie Laber.
''He was very close to Perry and he's taking this very hard,'' Laber said.
Kucinich, 61, is a six-term congressman from Ohio who is making his second bid for his party's nomination; he sought the nod in 2004. He registers in low single digits in polls and has raised little money for what is considered another long-shot run. Kucinich, who is known for his liberal views, has attracted a devoted following.
A Democratic rival, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, offered his condolences to Kucinich and his family. ''Barbara and I will keep your family in our thoughts and prayers,'' Richardson said in a statement.

My thoughts, Dennis is a quirky candidate, but he livens up the debates at times, he seems real rather than contrived like many of the others. Should he be President who knows after President Bush I don't think he could do any worse. This period in American history will be viewed my many as one of this nations darkest periods, the policies of this administration counter equal justice for all, this has truly been an "Imperial Presidency" President Nixon would be jealous if he had lived to see how powerful Cheney has become.
