After he was tackled by the Secret Service and charged with several crimes for glitter-bombing Mitt Romney, the Colorado Senate Democrats have fired their unpaid intern.
Colorado Senate majority chief of staff John Cevette says Smith was terminated Thursday. He was interning as part of a course at the University of Colorado Denver. Some activists have used “glitter bombing” to protest politicians’ opposition to same-sex marriage. Smith has said glittering Romney was worth it, but he worries he could be expelled from school.
There have been no glitter-bombings since Smith’s arrest.
