“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…”
According to the Dallas Morning News, Texas tea party Rep. Louie Gohmert declared that he will challenge Speaker John Boehner for the position of Speaker of the House.
The Dallas Morning News: “In a statement issued by his office early Sunday, Gohmert said the November elections, in which Republicans gained control of the Senate and padded their House majority, should have emboldened the Speaker to get tough on President Barack Obama.
“’Voters made clear they wanted change,’ he said. Instead, he added, Boehner ‘forced through the CRomnibus’ – a far-reaching spending bill – ‘by passing it with Democratic votes and without time to read it.’”
Gohmert is widely reviled by Democrats as not being the sharpest tool in the shed.
In the video above, Gohmert states that the Democrats are the “Party of No.”

House Republicans filed a long-threatened lawsuit Friday against the Obama administration over unilateral actions on the health care law that they say are abuses of the president’s executive authority.
They filed the lawsuit the day after the president’s immigration speech, seemingly as a type of retribution. Does the lawsuit have to do with immigration? No. It is related to Obamacare.
The host feels that the lawsuit does not have much substance because there is no victim. John Boehner and the House of Representatives should be able to show that they are a victim of the law. Also, the Administrative Procedure Act (of 1946) states that laws can be adjusted somewhat as long as they are eventually implemented.
