David Chesley is Sen. Rand Paul's political director in New Hampshire. And at a town hall in Londonderry on Monday, he gave a Democratic tracker a wet surprise.

American Bridge for the 21st Century—a Democratic group dedicated to tracking and recording every word that comes out of Republican candidates' mouths—released this video of Chesley licking a tracker's video camera.

American Bridge is doing everything it can to get under Republicans' skin. A group affiliated with Bridge recently filed a lawsuit against Paul for meeting with Peter Schweizer, the author of Clinton Cash, alleging they violated campaign finance laws.
