How Dennis Spends Tax Dollars

I've always thought Dennis Kucinich was an amusing candidate -- policy-wise nothing funny at all, but since he has no chance of ever seeing his policy dreams realized, a very funny prez wannabe.

But this is really a man who's seriously not funny:
Cleveland Congressman Dennis Kucinich didn't like that one of his Democratic primary opponents filmed a recent visit to his Lakewood congressional office.

So, Kucinich asked the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to question Cleveland Councilman Joe Cimperman, who delivered a mock "missing" poster to Kucinich's office on January 3rd.

The poster made fun of Kucinich for being away from his constituents and on the road so much during his ongoing campaign for president. (source)
It would have been funnier if the point of the poster was not the hackneyed "campaigning outside of the district" yawn-fodder, but that he's "missing" from Planet Normal.

As a result of Kucinich's unfunniness, a federal agent (on our payroll) actually had to track down Cimperman, (spend our money) to interview him and give him a heavy-handed warning (at our expense) that the use of the video camera inside the government office was possibly illegal.

"Possibly illegal?" Like Kucinich is "possibly" a petty, ugly little guy who should never be let out of Cleveland?
