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.”

If Google is to be believed, the group’s first order of business might be some leftover items from Kucinich’s legislative to-do list. This screenshot of a cached version of the Kucinich Action portal promotes passage of H.J. Res. 100:

The proposal, which calls for a constitutional amendment stemming the flow of nonpublic funds into federal campaigns, has been languishing in the House Judiciary Committee since January.
