Bathroom sink leak from lift rod

I installed a new faucet in my master bath. I have an under-sink leak coming from the lift rod. The water is not coming from the top of the faucet (it is not being splashed around and coming down the hole for the rod). It seems to be an internal leak that makes its way out via the lift rod.

I know I need to take the whole thing out and exchange it for a new faucet; my question is: where is the leak really coming from? No other leaks--all the connections are tight and dry.

Tighten up the nut that holds the lift rod in place.

The aerator is not screwed in all the way and there is a leak inside the spout. It may be cross threaded, so pull it out and re-thread it back in all the way.
