Newt Gingrich was glitter bombed in Iowa, now it is Santorum turn to face the
Members of Occupy Charleston “glitter-bombed” Rick Santorum at the tail end of his speech here at the Citadel tonight.
The occupiers, mostly College of Charleston students, shouted “Occupy!” and threw green glitter in the direction of the podium. One of the students told BuzzFeed afterwards that “I got him in the face!”
Buzzfeed.com is reporting that: Men in the audience tried to contain the group of about 10 protesters — including an elder son of the reality-TV Duggar family — getting hit with glitter themselves in the process. Police removed the protesters from the event as they yelled “Bigot! Bigot!” and “Occupy is everywhere!” An attendee of the speech hit one of them in the face on their way out the door.
