As reported on Opposing Views, Rep. Paul Ryan showed up, uninvited, to a Youngstown, Ohio soup kitchen last Saturday to get a quick photo op.

Now a video (below) of the awkward incident has been posted on YouTube.

Rep. Ryan puts aprons on his wife and kids, who stand by as the GOP vice presidential candidate starts washing an already-cleaned pan for the media.

Brian J. Antal, president of the Mahoning County St. Vincent De Paul Society, told the Washington Post that he was not contacted by the Romney/Ryan campaign ahead of the Saturday morning visit by Rep. Ryan. Antal said he did not give Rep. Ryan permission.
