Just before fmr. House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) spoke to the anti-gay group Minnesota Family Council on Tuesday night, an LGBT activist dumped rainbow glitter on him and shouted, “Feel the rainbow, Newt!”

The protester, Nick Espinosa, was quickly rushed away by private security. He later told ABC News: “Today, I invited Newt to feel the rainbow because he decided to bring his anti-gay politics to my state. Newt has a long history of anti-gay politics and has chosen to focus on divisive social issues instead of working to fix our economy. I don’t think a free will adulterer like Newt has any ground to stand up while telling others who they can and can’t love.”
