A gay activist today attempted to throw glitter on Michelle Bachmann, to show opposition to Michelle Bachmann’s stance on LGBTQ issues.

Via TPM;

A gay rights activists threw glitter at Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) as she left the stage at the RightOnline conference here Saturday. The “glittering” is not the first glitter-related stunt pulled on a Republican running for president this year.

Get Equal, a California-based gay rights group, claimed responsibility for the glittering, which did not hit Bachmann. A previous glittering aimed at Newt Gingrich was more successful in reaching its target.

Nevertheless, Get Equal called the stunt a success in a release posted on its website. The glitter bomber was identified as Rachel E. B. Lang, a Minnesotan.

She was described in the Get Equal release as “straight and a lawyer in Minneapolis,” with “several gay family members, including her mother and her 75-year-old uncle who recently married his 75-year-old same-sex partner in Iowa.”

After she attempted to glitter Bachmann, Lang yelled “You can run, but you cannot hide!”, which Get Equal says “a reference to the ‘You Can Run But You Cannot Hide‘ ministry for which Bachmann has helped raise money and to a proposed ban on same-sex marriage in Minnesota.”

  • Repeal the Windfall Elimination Provision. All the US goverment auditors and actuary’s for 50 years prior never found a windfall,!!!!!!!,,suddenly in 1983, it was there !!!!!! that is impossible !!!!! It was created by A. Greenspam and R. Ragean, Republicans who were obsessed in eliminating Social Security!!!!…Greenspam did a jig on the white house lawn at the signing…he was so exuberant !!!! After that wall streeet went on a boom,,followed by a bust…

  • Republicans are against gay marriage….and imigration….and abortion…and social security….and health care….and welfare….and collective bargining….and unions They are for war’s…the military….gun’s…knives….insurance company’s….wall street….and drilling the land.

  • The Platzner Post

    “You can run, but you cannot hide!”

  • I’m not sure what point assault by glitter is making, but I can guarantee that it will not change Ms. Bachmann’s stance on marriage equality and will encourage and radicalize her nutty supporters. Who thought of that??

  • While i dont approve of throwing things at people, it seems more acceptable than the crude shouting that was going on at the Weiner conference and I haven’t heard much disapproval about that
