Glitter has certainly found a way towards Rick Santorum’s face on the campaign trail.

While greeting supporters after a third place finish in the South Carolina Primary, the former Pennsylvania Senator was approached by ‘Occupy’ protesters not pleased over his anti-gay views.

“Hate, gay rights!” a woman shouted before throwing glitter at Santorum.

After being escorted out by security, the protesters continued their ardent chanting in the backroom.

“You’re a bigot,” they chanted. “Rick Santorum is a bigot. You hate gays, You hate gays!”

This is the second time on the campaign trail Santorum has been glitter bombed, receiving the treatment in late December from a man in Iowa.

And with Florida’s primary approaching, Santorum could potentially face another glitter bomb attack. His campaign manager in the state, O’Neal Dozier, once said that gays “make God want to vomit.”
