A man dumped a cracker box full of silver glitter all over Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich.

The man approached Gingrich and his wife at a book signing in Minneapolis Tuesday.

As Gingrich handed the man a signed copy of his book, he dumped a box full of glitter all over Gingrich and shouted, "Feel the rainbow Newt! Stop the hate! Stop anti-gay politics!"

Gingrich smiled as he brushed away the glitter, and said, "Nice to live in a free country."
