U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich denied an Internet rumor that Jewish officials had offered to help him win re-election if he dropped impeachment efforts against President Bush.

The rumor, which has gained traction in recent days on left-wing blogs, alleges that U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and several representatives of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee offered to "guarantee" Kucinich's re-election to the House if he dropped his effort to impeach President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.

According to the account Kucinich, an Ohio Democrat, threw them out of his office.

An official in Kucinich's office told JTA Monday that the rumors were baseless.

"It never happened," the official said.
