It was bound to happen. Former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney was finally the target of the much-dreaded “glitter bomb.” During a campaign stop in Minnesota, Romney was the target of not one, but two separate instances involving gay rights activists.
The mastermind behind the bombing was Robert Erickson, a Minnesota gay rights activist who's made a habit of ruining a perfectly good GOP campaign event by showering presidential candidates with glitter.
Erickson has targeted Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Tx.), former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and former Sen. Tim Pawlenty (R-Minn.) with glitter bombs during events in his home state. He also led the barbarian horde into the Christian-based counseling clinic run by Bachmann's husband in protest of the clinic's use of “reparative” therapy.
