Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty is the latest victim of the newest craze in civil disobedience against anti-gay Republican presidential candidates – the glitter bomb.
Newt Gingrich was struck in a similar by political activist Nick Espinosa while he was attending a Minnesota Family Council event back in May.
Pawlenty was hosting a book-signing event at the annual America's Health Insurance Plans conference when representatives from CodePink, an anti-war and women's advocacy group based in San Francisco, and the Center for Reproductive Rights showered Pawlenty with quite a bit of pink glitter and confetti.
“Where's your courage to stand for gay rights and reproductive rights,” one of the protesters shouted as she was escorted away from Pawlenty.
Check it out:
Both Pawlenty and Gingrich were targeted because of their lack of support for LGBT equality.
Pretty hardcore. I wonder which GOP presidential candidate will be next?
