Gingrich hit with glitter at Minneapolis event

MINNEAPOLIS (kare11.com) - GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich and his wife Callista were hit with glittery confetti by a protester Tuesday during the couple's appearance at a book-signing.

Robert Erickson, a journeyman political activist prankster also known as Nick Espinosa, approached Gingriches during the signing event at a downtown Minneapolis hotel. He dumped a cracker box full of confetti on the pair and said, "Feel the rainbow! Stop the hate!"

Two Associated Press reporters witnessed the event, and video has sense been posted on Erickson's Columbus Go Home website. In the past Erickson targeted GOP gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer based on his support of a sweeping immigration crackdown.
