The county coroner said that an autopsy is set to be performed to determine the exact cause of death.

There were no signs of foul play.

Rep. Kucinich is in Washington, D.C. and his spokesman said he is on his way home to Cleveland.

There are seven children in the Kucinich family.

Sorry for congressman Kucinich. He’s a nut, but he’ll give you an honest answer.

In the lack of other info, I’d guess heart attack. Dennis seems pretty high strung.

Yeah, out of seven siblings that are all at or past their 40s and on up, somebody is going to have heart problems or cancer or some other type of medical condition.

Yep, prayers for the family.

Kucinich is as nutty as they come, but I've never detected any malice in him. He believes what he believes and he's not going to change his position just to score points, I don't have to agree with him to respect him.

Marysville Journal Tribune (Marysville, Ohio), Feb 2, 1979, "Can Stand Trial" :
"Akron, Ohio (AP) — US District Judge Leroy Contie Jr ruled today that the [sic] Perry Kucinich, the youngest brother of Cleveland Mayor Dennis Kucinich, is not now competent to stand trial on a federal bank robbery charge. Contie ordered the 23-year-old to be committed indefinitely to a federal mental treatment facility at Springfield, Mo, but granted a 30-day delay to allow the defense lawyer to see if treatment could be arranged in Ohio."

Time Magazine, "Stickup Surge", Jan 15, 1979 :

"While Mayor Dennis Kucinich was withdrawing his personal savings from a local bank in protest because it demanded payment on its loans to the city, his brother Perry was making a far less publicized withdrawal at another Cleveland bank last month until he was caught and charged with bank robbery."

Kucinich is as nutty as they come, but I've never detected any malice in him.

I wish no physical harm to anyone in the Kucinich family but it is my belief that if you investigate Dennis Kucinich's rise to power you will find that he is a profoundly selfish and malicious man.

If God himself says, “I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked.” then we would be out of step to gloat over the death of a political enemy’s brother.

Perry Kucinich, 52, was found dead in his home in the 4100 block of East 71st Street.

His brother Larry found him about 9 a.m. There were no signs of violence, officials said. The Cuyahoga County Coroner is performing an autopsy this hour.

Their brother, Dennis Kucinich, is a U.S. Representative from Ohio’s 10th District. He is running for president.

Yeah, Dennis maybe nutty, but he doesn’t flip-flop. While not much can be said about his policies/beliefs, a lot could be said about his sticking to his beliefs, even if they are unpopular. You tend to know where people like that stand.

He’s a shrewd con-man. He knows how to appeal to a group of people that would never donate to anyone else. He gets those nitwits to finance his never-ending vacation trips, er, presidential campaigns. He gets our mentally compromised West-siders to vote him into office over and over. He’s living in the lap of luxury! And will retire to that same lifestyle.
A nut? Hardly!
Anyone who thinks Dennis is nutty, or honest, needs to read this article:

Prayers out to the family though.

If it were Edwards’ or Obama’s brother, I’d say Arkanicide.

It was the latest twist on the horses head in your bed.

They put a brother of a non-threatening candidate in the grave, and give the breck girl and osamaobama a phone call saying, "This could be your children, now screw up in the press and get the hell out of my way, OR YOU ARE NEXT".
