Report: Sandra Fluke Mulls Run for Henry Waxman's Seat

Sandra Fluke, the birth-control activist who helped Democrats launch their "Republican war on women" theme in the 2012 elections, is reported to be considering a run for the seat being vacated by Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA). Waxman announced his retirement after 20 terms in the U.S. House on Thursday morning.

Fluke, who reports her profession as "Social Justice Attorney," is from Los Angeles. The field of potential Democratic candidates is already filling quickly with state and local politicians who have bided their time for four decades, waiting for Waxman to leave an opening. But Fluke's national profile could draw big donors.

Alice Walson, political reporter for local public radio station KPCC, tweeted Thursday that Fluke was "strongly considering" a run.

I was surprised at how spectacularly bad some of them have been. Yet they almost always get reelected. Remember the woman who attached the capital guard? How about the one who worried Guam would turn turtle if we put too many men there? Wow.

I wonder how many guys she will “reward” for their promise to vote for her; possibly enough to win given her level of activity.

That fitting result of this, however, would be that if she runs, wins, and then also serves twenty terms as did her predecessor, she will provide the same enduring service - only this time for females, how fitting! - to America as he: that of being the most physically repulsive person in congress.

Yeah, it would be a real shame if a hardcore commie didn’t continue to hold the seat after Nostrilitis is gone.

The sarcasm tag was for the ‘THANKS’ part, not the ‘DESTROYING’ part. The destruction isn’t sarcasm.

Sandra Fluke isn't exactly an Abortion Barbie like Texas's Wendy Davis.

...more like Rush's definition of a feminist.

She wouldn't be the first slut to represent California in Congress. Her quals are suitable for the CA electorate.

News just gets worse each day. I pity the folks that are growing up now. The last two generations have left them a pile of Guano in both House and Senate. To rid themselves of the mess they inherit will be a huge task.

I’m putting my money on Rat State Senator Ted Lieu.

He represents and lives in the area, and has always expressed a craving for higher office.

Let’s see ....going from a man whose face qualifies as instant birth control to a woman who wants everybody else to pay for her birth control? Seems like a one issue congressional district.
