Accused Romney 'Glitter Bomber' Fired From Senate [View all]

DENVER -- The Colorado Senate has fired an unpaid intern accused of "glitter bombing" Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney after the Colorado caucuses.

Twenty-year-old college student Peter Smith was fired Thursday afternoon. Police say Smith threw glitter at Romney as the candidate greeted supporters in Denver Tuesday night.

Smith is a student at the University of Colorado Denver who was interning in the Democratic Senate as part of a college course. Smith's boss, Senate majority office chief of staff John

Cevette, says that Smith was terminated after a staffer alerted him to the incident.
Cevette said student interns are not chosen by Senate President Brandon Shaffer, a Longmont Democrat. He could not say whether Smith would lose course credit.
