Smith said the plan to throw glitter on Romney on Feb. 7 was a spur-of-the-moment idea. He said he chose blue glitter because there’s “no other color he’d rather see on a Republican.”

“Would I do it again for the message and to protest him as an individual? Yes. Would I choose different means? Yes, definitely,” he said. “I should never had brought his security into question. That was my epic downfall and I’ll never do it again.”

Smith was fired from an internship at the Colorado senate for his actions. As for the other falllout:
