Jeb Bush was interrupted by two young men claiming to be seat fillers on caucus day in Iowa, the same day a flyer surfaced claiming to pay people to attend the candidate's rally.

"We’ve been here for over two hours and we haven’t gotten paid for our time," one man said, interrupting Bush on Monday and eliciting boos, USA Today reported.

"That is such — get out of here, man," Bush said as security guards mobilized to remove the interrupters.

"Have the YRs left the room?" he continued, referring to a group called the Young Republicans. "When I was younger, that would always happen. The YR guys would go to other campaigns and play like that."

The incident happened the same day the Daily Mail reported that it was approached by two young men outside a Rand Paul event and handed a flyer. 

"Earn Fast Cash Today!" read the flyer. "Seat fillers needed TODAY at 12pm for campaign event." The address listed matched that of Bush's event.

The young men told the Daily Mail that they worked not for the Bush event, but for "Dale Herbert Events."

Another person who highlighted the flyer was Jeff Sadosky, a spokesman for the Conservative Solutions PAC, which supports Bush rival Marco Rubio, according to The Daily Beast.

Sadosky tweeted a picture of what appeared to be the same flyer, causing a stir on the social network.


In reaction, Tim Miller, the Bush campaign's communications director, told The Daily Beast that the flyers were an "obvious prank."

Sadosky also commented, saying he believes the flyers could be a hoax, but also took the opportunity to take a shot at the Bush campaign.

"The Jeb folks are saying it is a hoax, don’t have any reason to not believe them, I just saw it on Twitter," he said. "Given their fundraising troubles of late, probably makes sense that they couldn’t afford this."
