(Newser) – An Emmy-winning Miami political reporter didn't get quite the scoop he was looking for when he knocked on the door of an aspiring local politician: A sign on the home of Democratic congressional primary candidate Justin Lamar Sternad, who's currently busily not answering questions about a scandal he's mired in, announced that any visiting reporter would "get wet" in defense of Sternad's "five small children," Mediaite reports. Indeed, when the door opened and reporter Michael Putney introduced himself, he got a big splash in the face for his trouble—apparently courtesy of Sternad's wife.
