On Tuesday night, a student at University of Colorado Denver was arrested by Secret Service for trying to throw glitter at Mitt Romney. Now sources are telling Colorado Peak Politics that the “glitter bomber” worked for the Colorado state Senate Democrats. This session.
The student in question, Peter Smith, faces up to 6 months in prison for “creating a disturbance, throwing a missile and an unlawful act on school property,” according to Denver Police spokesman Sonny Jackson.
Our sources are saying he was fired by the Senate Democrats either yesterday or today.
Glitter bombing has become a tool of liberal gay rights activists who somehow in their deluded minds think that throwing glitter at politicians will change their views on gay marriage.
Just as Occupy Denver thought defecating on public property would reduce income inequality, liberal activists seem to think drawing unflattering attention to themselves will do something other than just embarrass themselves.
What is already a stupid and counterproductive act — throwing glitter, really? — becomes much more serious when it is used with a Secret Service protectee. As Roger Simon of Politico has said, the Secret Service has no way of knowing if the substance is glitter or anthrax.
In a video captured by The Denver Post, you can see Mitt Romney moving swiftly out of the way, avoiding the glitter, while the “glitter bomber/Senate Democrat aide” is forcibly ejected from the room by Secret Service.
