“Jeffrey Lane ‘Jeff’ Fortenberry, (born December 27, 1960) is the U.S. Representative for Nebraska’s 1st congressional district, serving since 2005. He is a member of the Republican Party. The district is based in Lincoln and includes most of the eastern third of the state outside the immediate Omaha area,” according to Wikipedia.
Aides to Rep. Fortenberry were hit Wednesday by a “glitter bomb” sent to his Lincoln office, according to Omaha.com.
Sources claimed the congressman avoided being showered with the unwanted sparkling decorations, because he was a thousand miles away at the time on Capitol Hill.
A glitter bomb is a prank device designed to throw out a cloud of tiny sparkles, which get into clothes, computer keyboards and everywhere else.
The prank appeared to be motivated by Fortenberry’s anti-abortion positions, said spokeswoman Jennifer Allen.
She said a note included with the glitter read: “Congrats, you’ve earned this for trying to deny women their right to choice…”
