Attempted “glitterbombing” of a presidential candidate–not advised.
The exceedingly weak failure of a “glitterbomb” occurs at 0:20.
The college student who threw glitter at Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in Denver on Tuesday night was fired from an internship at the Colorado legislature Thursday.
Twenty-year-old Peter Lucas Smith talked with 9NEWS about the glitter-bombing, which he says was intended to show solidarity with gay rights advocates.
Smith is a University of Colorado Denver student and had an unpaid internship working in the press office of the state Senate Democrats.
That’s cool, “show solidarity” all you want, though in this case you’re doing something the Secret Service has an easy time mistaking for an attack they should reply to with lethal force. Maybe it’s something you’ll tell your grandkids with pride someday, but in the meantime you’ll have to explain it to future employers–potentially less cool.
Anyway, if you ever get it in your exuberant college student head to pull something like this, and you just scored a career-opening legislative internship, either reconsider or resign first.
