Kucinich weds British woman

US CONGRESSMAN Dennis Kucinich has married a British woman, shedding the bachelor status that made headlines during his long-shot presidential campaign last year.

Mr Kucinich and Elizabeth Harper, who works for a monetary-policy think tank in Chicago, married yesterday before about 250 guests outside City Hall, where he once served as mayor.

Guests included some of his colleagues in Congress and actors Shirley MacLaine and Sean Penn. MacLaine and Mr Kucinich are long-time friends, and Penn endorsed the Democrat for president last year.
