Dennis Kucinich PACs It In

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) is ready to begin the next chapter of his career. And that future apparently involves fighting the undue influence of corporate-sponsored politicking by throwing other people’s money at the problem.

Kucinich, who lost his primary challenge and will not be returning to Congress next year, has officially announced the launch of Kucinich Action.

According to a release, the progressive advocacy group — which is bankrolled by Kucinich Action PAC — is intended to “build a powerful grassroots movement and empower individuals to engage within the political process.”
