Soon-to-be ex-Congressman Dennis Kucinich brought his cock-tease campaign back to Washington state this weekend, speaking at a fund-raiser for Dems in Woodinville on Sunday. His appearance--the fifth in the state since February--either means he's planning on running for office in Washington or he got a bad sandwich wrap during his last visit and has returned to sue.
In either case, his event on Sunday, which came one day after he joined protestors in speaking out against Chase Bank in Wallingford, was met with mixed reactions by those in attendance.
The Seattle Timesreports that Democratic Chairman Dwight Pelz continues to be hostile to The Kuc transplanting to Washington.
"I continue to be unsupportive of the notion that a congressman from Ohio should run in Washington state," Pelz said Saturday. "Kucinich has played a positive role in American politics, but it's a role he needs to play from Cleveland, not Lynnwood."
Others, like Martin Chaney, Chairman of the 45th Legislative District Democrats, were more open to the pol migrating northwest.
"He brought a lot of people into the Democratic Party that year," said Chaney, who added he would consider supporting Kucinich if he were to run here.
When Kucinich will finally declare whether he's going to move to Washington and run for office here or not is unknown.
But until then, we'll keep updating the interactive Kucinich Watch 2012 Map below, and hope that if he doesn't run, he at least teaches some of the politicians who are here how to properly stick their hand up a puppet's ass.
