Since the start of the 2012 election campaign, "glitter-bombing" has become one of the more popular trends.
Just about every presidential candidate has felt the wrath of an angry gay-rights supporter who have made news by either throwing glitter or dumping a box of it on a GOP presidential candidate while shouting a message.

Even though this country allows free-speech (we think), "glitter-bombing" has become too much of a phenomenon and now prosecutors are seeking jail time for those doing it.
The first example seems to be University of Colorado-Boulder student Peter Smith who "glitter-bombed" Mitt Romney after he gave a speech in Colorado earlier this week.
He is now being charged with “creating a disturbance, throwing a missile and an unlawful act on school property.” He faces six months in jail if convicted.
No one has been hurt or injured by a "glitter-bomb" attack yet. Usually, the victim just brushes it off and cracks a joke.
