CLEVELAND -- Outgoing Congressman Dennis Kucinich's Cleveland home was burglarized while he was in Washington D.C.
"I arrived from Washington on Monday, November 5 to discover that my home had been burglarized and ransacked. The Cleveland Police Department responded promptly and they are investigating," Kucinich said, in a statement on Wednesday.
Cleveland police tell WKYC-TV that nothing was taken, files were scattered around the home and entry was gained through a rear window.
They said the report has been filed with the city's law department for redaction (removal) of sensitive information.
Because of redistricting following the 2010 elections, Kucinich, 66, had him pitted against 9th district incumbent Marcy Kaptur in the 2012 Democratic primary, which he lost.
Kaptur was re-elected Tuesday.
