Mitt Romney was “glitter bombed” by an advocate protesting the former governor’s flimsy record on equality for gay and lesbian Americans as he took the stage at a campaign event in Eagan, Minnesota this afternoon. “There is the guy! Waive your had over here, through the glitter, there he goes,” Romney called out cheerfully and explained that the glitter is actually “confetti” to celebrate his victory in the Florida primary last night:
ROMNEY: Hi there, how are you? Hi there! How are you? Good to see you! There you go….Hey listen guys, I’m delighted to be here with you, this is an exciting time. I’m happy for a little celebration. This is confetti! We just won Florida! We’re just going to win the White House next! Let me tell you, President Obama is not going to be seeing a lot of confetti.
Romney was glitter bombed a second time as he signed autographs after his brief remarks:
