A list of the best "sore loser moments in politics" published by The Washington Post includes New Mexico congressional candidate Gary Smith, who got caught on video slashing the tires of his opponent Janice Arnold-Jones and her campaign manager late last year.

SFR broke the story first, and just last month, Smith was back in court to seek a judge's permission to represent himself in the criminal case. If convicted on all counts, Smith could be sentenced up to 14.5 years in prison.

Also on the list are Anthony Wiener, a former congressman who flipped the bird to reporters after losing a primary race for mayor of New York City; Al Gore's demand of a recount in the 2000 presidential race and candidates for governor in Virginia and New Jersey contests earlier this week.
