One way to get rid of a pesky reporter: Throw a bucket of water on him.
That's what the wife of a failed candidate embroiled in a campaign scandal did to Miami Local 10 senior political reporter Michael Putney.
The TV journalist came away drenched but not any more enlightened than when he knocked on the door. The caught-on-tape moment has made a splash on the Web.

According to the Miami Herald, failed Democratic congressional candidate Justin Lamar Sternad is reportedly telling the FBI that the Republican, Rep. David Rivera, secretly contributed to his campaignin an apparent failed attempt to plant a ringer candidate in the 25th District's primary election.

I’m all for regularly assaulting “journalists.”
Hell, if I could afford it, I’d offer a bounty for their scalps.
