Pennsylvania Democrat Joe Sestak was apparently so excited to march in the Delaware County Independence Day parade that even little kids standing on the edge of the streets weren’t safe from his jumping, rambunctious clumsiness. Sestak knocked over at least two kids innocently standing on the sidelines trying to watch the parade march by.

Sestak was in such a dither jumping around and trying to shake hands as he barreled down the street that he mowed down several little tykes who were innocently standing there.

The 64-year-old Setak is seen on video hopping around and running down the side of the street grabbing at people sitting on the sidelines but in his enthusiasm for glad-handing Sestak doesn’t seem to notice the little ones.

A former three-star Admiral in the Navy and former Congressman, Sestak left Congress in 2011 to run for Senate but has been defeated several times in the quest. He is running again in 2016 hoping to unseat his arch rival Republican Senator Pat Toomey.
