STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Every political candidate's family may wish they could do this. The wife of a failed congressional candidate threw a bucket of water on a reporter. Justin Lamar Sternad ran in the Democratic primary. He is suspected of taking money from a Republican to scramble that primary. He put up a warning sign at his home reading: Trespassers will be wet. An inquisitive TV reporter ignored that and video of him splashed in the face became an Internet sensation. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright National Public Radio.
