So far, Minnesotan Nick Epinosa, creator of the Glitter Bomb movement, has left Tea-Bagger Queen/Presidential Candidate Michele Bachmann, Serial Monogamist/Misogynist Newt Gingrich and Minnesota's Douchbag in Chief Tim Pawlenty in his sparkly wake.
This week Espinosa adds potential First Lady and Perennial Closet Case, Marcus Bachmann to his list. Bachmann, along with his dutiful and submissive wife Michele, runs a clinic that practices pray-away-the-gay conversion therapy. At first, he denied conducting the psychologically damaging "reparative therapy", then said he only offered it at the request of his clients, after Truth Wins Out's undercover investigation exposed his lies last week. Bachmann's clinic received $137,000 in Medicaid funding this year, according to MSNBC.
Playing off Miss Marcus' infamous radio interview, where he compared gays to barbarians who need to be educated and disciplined, Espinosa and his friends donned their barbarian attire and paid a visit to the offices of Bachmann and Associates this week, demanding to see the Michelle Obama wanna-be. He was either not in the office or was hiding in a back room somewhere, so the group left their glittery calling card to the strains of Lady Gaga's Born This Way, chanting "You can't pray away the gay, baby we were born this way!" and finishing with, "Hey Marcus! What's in your closet?"
