CAUGHT ON TAPE: Democrat Congressional Candidate Tussles with Cameraman & Takes Camera

In the world of politics, trackers have become a part of campaign life. Sometimes they are professionals and sometimes they are concerned citizens who are simply filming and happen to catch something on camera.

YouTube has become the stomping grounds for pushing video out that reveals sides of politicians that they’d rather the public didn’t see. Yet, amazingly enough, these candidates never seem to accept these 21st century rules no matter how often campaigns and candidates are ruined as a result of them.

The latest candidate to not understand this is Democrat Congressional candidate Ann McLane Kuster, running for New Hampshire’s second district agains Rep. Charlie Bass (R).

At a public event, a cameraman approaches Kuster in an attempt to ask a question. As she continues to not answer him, he walks in front of her, and that’s when the fun begins.

How these candidates remain oblivious to modern standards of public decorum is beyond me. Is it annoying to have people in your face all the time asking you questions? Of course. But seriously, know what you’re signing up for. If you can’t handle a guy asking you questions at a public event in front of hundreds of people, you may want to reconsider the job you’re applying for.
