By way of Political Carnival, Sam Stein of the Huffington Post and TRMS producer Tina Cone, here's what looks like video from the Minnesota family values event where a protester dumped glitter on Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich. The video is posted on the YouTube account for "Robert Erikson" -- likely really Nick Espinosa, who's built something of a resume punking the right.
At a book signing in Minneapolis, recently declared the hippest and gayest city in America, I greeted 2012 GOP presidential contender and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich with a shower of rainbow glitter.
"Feel the Rainbow!" I shouted. Gingrich was conducting the book signing as part of The Minnesota Family Council & Institute Annual Dinner 2011 celebration. The MFC has been an instrumental mover of a marriage inequality amendment that would enshrine discrimination in Minnesota's state constitution.
More about that Minnesota anti-gay amendment here. It's worth watching this clip all the way through to the moment the elevator doors draw closed.
