McKenna Tells Tracker to "Get a Job"

The Seattle Times notes it's been "a common practice in politics for years" for trackers to follow politicians trying to get their gaffes recorded "and most politicians have learned to blow off such tracking efforts."

But Washington gubernatorial candidate Rob McKenna (R) "appeared to let it get under his skin" in an encounter earlier this week. McKenna told the tracker -- who identified herself as a "youth worker" -- wasn't being "honest" and was trying to "bushwhack" him. Walking away, he said, "You're just trying to gain a political advantage, sorry. Why don't you go get a job?"

Of course, the exchange is on video.

Here's the video:
