Madia campaigner stole scooter, had to use bathroom "real bad"

Ashwin Madia, the DFL candidate running for Minnesota's 3rd District, can't seem to stay out of the news for non-issues this week. Yesterday we reported that one of his volunteers was caught on video taking his opponent's campaign signs from a public right-of-way. Then the DFL had to fire a new employee after he was caught stealing a scooter while passing out Madia campaign literature. The reason? Sean Folstad, 22, had to go to the bathroom "real bad" and needed to get to a local park ASAP.

Watch the video after the jump.

The DFL released a statement saying they acted quickly and fired Folstad. He was ticketed for theft and disorderly conduct and warned not to back into that neighborhood, according to FOX News.

We sort of feel bad for the guy. When you have to go, you have to go. Now he's unemployed and actually spoke to TV news and admitted he had to go "real bad". Public embarrassment at its best.
