Newt and his wife Callista were at a book signing before the annual Minnesota Family Council dinner when a young man named Nick Espinosa reached into a box he was carrying, shouted "Feel the rainbow, Newt!" and tossed glitter all over the aspiring presidential candidate.
"The glitter culprit is Nick Espinosa, a 24 year old unemployed non profit worker turned social activist from Minneapolis, Minn. Espinosa worked with a non-profit helping unemployed people for two years before being laid off due to budget cuts. His encounter with Newt on Tuesday was in protest to Gingrich’s stance on gay marriage.
"'Today, I invited Newt to feel the rainbow because he decided to bring his anti-gay politics to my state,' Espinosa told ABC News Tuesday night. 'Newt has a long history of anti-gay politics and has chosen to focus on divisive social issues instead of working to fix our economy. I don’t think a free will adulterer like Newt has any ground to stand up while telling others who they can and can’t love.'"
Poor Newt! Glitter is truly the herpes of the craft world. Watch below:
