Skip to comments.Is this why Sandra Fluke picked to testify? Progressive groups snagged in birth control debate

Prior to her testimony to Congress, did Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke have any prior connection to Obama administration officials?
Did the Congresswomen who pushed Flukes testimony coordinate with a marketing outfit that recently conducted polling to determine whether contraception mandates can become a possible presidential election issue?
According to reports, it was Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-New York, who pushed for Flukes testimony. Maloney also initiated the call for Fluke to sue Rush Limbaugh for his on-air derogatory remark about Fluke, according to The Daily Beast.
Maloney is tied to a progressive pollster, Celinda Lake, who recently ran extensive polling in an effort to gauge voters reactions to including birth control or contraception in insurance coverage.
Lake heads Lake Research, which lists both Maloney and Nancy Pelosi as recent clients.
During the hearing, Maloney thanked Nancy Pelosi for bringing Sandra [Fluke] to this hearing and for your commitment to these issues that are so important to tens of millions of women and men across our country.

KleinOnline has found that her Lake Research is one of the driving forces behind the progressive strategy to use contraception as an election.
Most likely just a Fluke occurrence.
lol, very good
You’re missing the big fish: Anita Dunn, Coffee Party wannabee!
He mentions her in the article.
Maloney is mistaken for choosing this as an election issue. And it is going to backfire...big time.
People are worried about how to feed their kids and keep a roof over their heads right now. And all the duh-uh leftist Democrats can come up with is yet another scheme and variation on how to spend MORE of Americans’ hard-earned money?
It’s positively asinine and absurd.
The fluke did not testify to congress. It was a media show set up to look like a Congressional Hearing. It wasn’t.Were it a real Republicans would have been in charge and she would not have said ridiculous things without challenge.
As many suspected; it was a put up job.
Could be that Fluke is the smoke screen needed to keep the good solutions coming from conservatives out of the MSM, or to keep Obama’s failures as POTUS out of view as well as his most recent dumbarse disgusting act, that of apologizing to Hamid Karzai, President of Afghanistan whose very own soldiers murdered American soldiers for their burning of trash in which there were copies of the Koran...which were part of other trash left by prisoners. This embarrassment acting as Commander In Chief to our Military, threw our brave soldiers under his bus. Obama is a disgrace to this nation and all we use to stand for, some still do. Obama’s disrespect for this nation is unbelievable.
I think they have badly miscalculated. It’s likely enough that a majority of people support the right to contraceptives—for others, even if they don’t use them themselves. Sure, go ahead, if you want to.
But not too many people support this fascist move to make everyone pay for other people’s contraceptives.
If you ask them, “Would you like your insurance company to pay for contraceptives?,” most people would answer, sure, why not? Another freebie.
But if you ask them, “Do you want the government to force contraceptives down everyone’s throat, and force them to pay for other people’s contraceptives and abortificients, even if it violates their religious beliefs,” then you’re not going to get a majority on that.
If her parents are anything like her, it is a fluke she was ever born.
Sure is a mistake. Especially now that it’s basically exposed that she was a plant. I heard a caller to one of the talk shows say he looked up Planned Parenthood clinics in relation to the location of the university. He said there are 3 of them. She chose that school with the intention of getting their policy changed. Very convenient timing of the entire contraception argument to take attention away from zero’s crash and burn America actions.
A new word has been added to the English lexicon: Fluked as in ...that is totally Fluked. She really has Fluked herself big time.
This whole fiasco began with the Komen/PP “controversy”. It had all been planned many moons ago. The commie ‘RATS had to do things that would piss the women off at the “evil white male” Republicans. It all worked like a charm. Barry and the ‘RATS are laughing their butts off at the stupidity of the American people.
Anyone that thinks someone is just going to be randomly picked to testify in a made up hearing is nuts. Of course, she was picked because she would offer testimony that would be attractive to liberals and progressives. She had to have credentials or she would still be an obscure law student.
Republicans should use the class warfare approach to their own benefit. This just reeks of elitism. This woman attending one of the most expensive and prestigious schools in the country is demanding that everybody pay for her contraception. Megyn Kelly said the graducates of Georgetown make over $150,000 the first year after graducation.
Sandra Fluke is a elitist snob who believes she is entitled to anything she wants. If I were on the panel that was questioning her, I would ask her why her boyfriend didn’t pay half of her contraception. He got half of the benefit, he should have to pay for half of the bill.
New American expression: go fluke yourself.
I’ve just figured out that the fluke person may be the inspiration for Frank Zappa’s Dinah-Moe Humm........nah, I guess she’s too young.
