Congressman's Brother Found Dead (Kucinich)
News Channel 5 (Cleveland, Akron) ^ | 19 Dec 2007 | News Net 5

Posted on 12/19/2007 10:57:22 AM PST by af_vet_rr

Perry Kucinich, brother of Rep. Dennis Kucinich, was found dead Wednesday morning at his east-side home.

Perry Kucinich was found by another brother, Larry Kucinich, at about 9 a.m.

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.

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".

You're not being serious, are you?

A schizophrenic bank robber brother of Dennis Kucinich's turns up dead, and your first thought is that it has to be a byzantine conspiracy by Hillary Clinton to intimidate Barack Obama?

What dosage of thorazine are you on?

Kind of weird timing, but no signs of foul play

That's always the case when Hitlery sends a message.

Kucinich is anti-gun and anti-free markets, he is essentially anti-american

..and yet, your candidate Ron Paul says Kucinich is the one candidate currently running he would consider supporting.. hmmm...

Thanks for the info. I was just going on what I’ve seen of him in presidential races (he never had a chance at winning, so I never really looked any deeper).

Prayers for the family; and I can imagine that Congressman Kucinich feels a special loss. It sounds like this brother was a troubled soul.

Prayers going up.

he's not going to change his position just to score points,

For the record, Kucinich was solidly anti-abortion before he ran for president. Now, it's a beautiful thing.

Sympathy to Dennis.

IIRC, there’s an old proverb that says that no family can (honestly) put
a sign on their front door saying “There are NO problems/crises here”.

There are just certain commonalities that hit everyone, no matter
where they fall on the political spectrum.

Perry Kucinich was seriously mentally ill, presumably schizophrenic, and Dennis was his primary caretaker much of his adult life. It is pretty nauseating that a few people here would make ugly jokes about this sad end to a life that never had much of a chance.

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.

He changed his position on abortion so that he could make a no-chance-in-hell presidential race in 2004.

But prayers for him and his family.

I don’t agree with a word Dennis says but he seems like a really nice guy and he walks the talk. He is passionate about his beliefs and he doesn’t waver. God bless him and his family. How hard this Christmas will be for them all.

Sounds like he had long standing mental health problems. I hope he found peace. This could happen to any family.

“Perry Kucinich was a talented artist who produced a prodigious volume of work. Some of his works have been on display recently at a local art gallery. He and his brother Dennis were planning another showing of his works in the spring...

“He was an admirer of the works of Klee and Picasso, and the style and structure of his artwork derived from their influences,” said Dennis Kucinich. “He was a genius. He had extraordinary insights. Although he struggled with mental illness, with the help of his family and friends, he was able to lead a productive life.”

“The Kucinich family is very close knit,” said family spokesman Andy Juniewicz. “This is a devastating loss to each and every member of the Kucinich family. Dennis was very close to his brother Perry. He watched after him, and he loved him dearly. The two spoke nearly every day. He was more like Dennis’s son than his brother.”

It is so hard not to respond like someone over at Douchebag Underground or KOS over something like this, especially after thinking about how those lefties expressed their “concern” over Dick Cheney’s recent heart issues and Tony Snow’s cancer. Prayers to the Kucinich family.

But it is Bush’ fault and he should be impeached.

From the article:

But Kucinich had allowed style to manhandle substance; he was against everything, rather than providing solutions of his own.

Dennis hasn't changed any....
