Just two days after protestors of the Occupy Charleston inclination attempted to glitter-bomb Rick Santorum at the Mount Pleasant Waterfront Park, a second attempt was made after the candidate's Saturday night primary speech.

Indeed, in one Associated Press photo you can see the glitter careening towards the candidate who has oft made anti-gay remarks. However, a deft reaction by the candidate appears to have saved him from the need of an intense dust off. 

Live 5 News caught the incident on film, take a watch up top or over here. CBS News has a YouTube clip as well.

Protesters were escourted outside after the incident.

Santorum was previously glitter bombed in Iowa and attempts have recently been made on other Republican candidates. Saturday the candidate was at The Citadel's Mark Clark Hall Auditorium.
