Santorum 'glitter bombed' at town hall event

Elsewhere, Rep. Ron Paul (Texas) was glitter bombed in Minneapolis, Minnesota by a member of the "Glitterati," a pro-gay rights group.

Both incidents aren't isolated events for the GOP presidential field. Over the last few weeks former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (Ga.) and former Gov. Mitt Romney (Mass.) have also been showered in glitter. 

Romney, for his part, seemed to take it in stride. 

"Oh, I've got glitter in my hair. That's not all that's in my hair, I'll tell you that. I glue it on every morning, whether I need to or not," Romney said at an event last week after he'd been glitter bombed.
