From JournalStar.com, March 5:

Lincoln police are investigating who sent a so-called glitter bomb letter to Congressman Jeff Fortenberry’s Lincoln office Wednesday.

The glitter was in a standard envelope sent to the office at 301 S. 13th St. and was “unleashed” when the envelope was opened about noon, Lincoln Police Sgt. Brian Agnew said.

The note, sent by the group Glitter Bombs for Choice, criticized Fortenberry’s stance on abortion and abortion rights.

“You’ve earned this for trying to deny women their right to choice,” the letter read. “Mind your own uterus.”

Fortenberry, a Republican who represents Nebraska’s 1st Congressional District, received the Nebraska Right to Life’s endorsement in 2014 and recently supported a House of Representatives effort to prohibit federal funding for abortions.

The letter had a fake name and was not sent from the return address on the envelope.

There were those headlines that credited “pro-choice activists” with the glitter bomb, but just as many omitted the ideology of the culprits, as indicated in the graphic above.

But imagine if it had been pro-life activists who glitter bombed a pro-abortion legislator.

How do you think that story would have played out in the media?
