Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) on Monday helped kick off a hunger strike of postal workers protesting what they say is an effort to privatize and dismantle the cash-strapped United States Postal Service.
The strike which includes 10 postal workers, union activists and supporters, but not Kucinich himself is the latest in a long saga of efforts to reform the postal service as it faces a dim financial future.
While lawmakers generally agree that postal reform is necessary, they disagree on the specifics.

Asked if he intends to join the hunger strike himself, Kucinich said, Im a vegan, so Im kind of hungry all the time. Im here in moral support of their efforts.
His wife is one of the the great mysteries of the Universe! She has to be left of Beelzebub is my guess.
Poor Denise...doesn’t like being OUT of the media...
come Jan. he is retired from Politics??? ya think??
Kucinich will find a way to keep in the public eye and politics.
If he’d learn to sing, he could go on tour with Willie Nelson. If he can’t, he could play the wooden dummy to sit on his knee and pretend to sing.
I owe him a debt of gratitude.
When the “boy wonder” took Cleveland into default in the early 80s, I decided it was time to get out.
Wonder if he’ll go back to being mayor of Cleveland?
The perfect answer to a hunger strike is to let the strikers starve (I understand from what they said about Terri S that it’s a good way to die). Ignore them as what they choose to eat (or not eat) is none of our business.
Even when a prisoner goes on a hunger strike the response should be to provide them their normal meals. If they choose not to eat them, that is their choice. We should never forcibly intervene. If they want to starve themselves to death then let them.
Did they join the strikers that are part of the buggy wip union?
