Rush Limbaugh: I deserve finder’s fee for Sandra Fluke By: Kevin Robillard August 8, 2012 02:16 PM EDT

Rush Limbaugh said Wednesday he deserves a “finder’s fee” for Sandra Fluke, who is campaigning with President Barack Obama in Colorado.

“Obama’s out there today, he’s at a fundraiser, and guess who is introducing him? Well-known contraception expert Sandra Fluke,” the conservative radio host said.

“When you mention her name, my name is what most people think of,” he continued, according to audio posted by The Daily Rushbo. “I should be getting a finder’s fee.”

Fluke is scheduled to introduce Obama at a campaign rally — not a fundraiser — in Denver on Wednesday.

She first came to prominence after House Republicans refused to allow her to testify at a February hearing on a contraception mandate included in the health care reform law. Democrats later held a protest hearing where she was allowed to testify. The next week, Limbaugh attacked Fluke two days in a row on his radio show, repeatedly calling her a “slut.”

In her testimony, Fluke had said many women at Georgetown University — where she was a third-year law student — find it difficult to afford birth control since the school’s health care plan doesn’t cover it. Limbaugh said this was because “she’s having so much sex.” Limbaugh said that if Fluke wanted federally funded birth control, she should post sex tapes online “so all of us can watch.”

Limbaugh’s comments provoked a massive outcry. He lost almost 100 advertisers and eventually issued an apology.

I hope she has enough contraceptives for the trip.

When she becomes a back-bencher in Congress or host of her own show on MSNBC, she’ll have ElRushbo to thank.

Maybe then she will be able to afford her rubbers at the drugstore.

LOL, yea, (or older).

But it was another she/the media was spreading early on when the story first broke.

Her age was exposed later on, but that poster had already been created by then.

Fluke is the perfect example of media corruption. Back in the Clinton era one could not level any charges against him unless they were deemed clean and clear of any 'partisanship.' So if you opposed Clinton, and still had credible charges to be leveled against him, it would not even get reported.

Flash forward to Fluke. She is treated like this 'typical' student. She gets in the dust-up with Rush. And a week or so later the right side of the internet begins to see her left wing advocacy. he wasn't a typical student. She's a lousy left wing hack. Yet the dying media has yet to report this.
