Woman Who Can’t Afford Her Own Birth Control Switches to Run for California State Senate
Posted By Bryan Preston On February 5, 2014 @ 7:58 am In Politics | No Comments
Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown grad best known for telling America that she can’t afford her own birth control, spent $1,740 on the filing fee to run for Congress. Now Fluke says she isn’t running for Congress. Instead, she is running for state Senate.
Democratic attorney and activist Sandra Fluke has decided against running for retiring Rep. Henry A. Waxmans congressional seat, instead planning a bid for the state Senate.
I am extremely moved by the outpouring of local and national support I have received since I announced that I was considering running for office. My entire career has been devoted to the public interest, whether representing victims of human trafficking or advocating for working families, Fluke said late Tuesday night. I am committed to continuing that fight in Sacramento, working to protect our environment, ensure our access to health care, and create the jobs that are desperately needed. While I strongly considered offering my candidacy for Congress, I feel there is a better way for me to advance the causes that are important to our community.”
The fee to run for California Senate: $952.91. Or about 106 months (almost nine years) of birth control at the $9 per month many Walmarts and pharmacies charge for the pill. But Fluke won’t have to sacrifice the pill to pay her filing fee, not as long as the Obama administration mandates that the likes of the Little Sisters of the Poor pick up the birth control tab.
Fluke filed then found out that she and another candidate, former city comptroller Wendy Gruel, would end up attracting the same set of voters. Fluke denies that she had any such political calculations in mind, and implausibly claims that she thinks she could accomplish more in the Democrat-dominated California Senate than in Congress.
Reality: A party deal was made by which Fluke gets a lower office in exchange for not getting in a couple other pols’ way.
Looks like she was trying to jump the waiting line for the seat being vacated by Nostrilitus and got slapped back to the Newbie slot.
Carpet bag lady.
I believe there is a word for such a woman who can be bought...................
Lock-stepping Sandra's state Senate campaign aligns herself w/ Obama and Nancy Pelosi---advocates for a felatio free-for-all (cackle).
5/9/12 HUFF/POST REPORT---Cong Nancy Pelosi sent out an appeal on behalf of the DCCC:
"Isn't it great? President Obama just announced that he supports marriage equality for all Americans...
We must continue to fight - in the courts, in state legislatures, and in Congress - until all lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans are guaranteed fair treatment in our country.
Add your name right now to stand with President Obama in support of marriage equality."
RE: Carpet bag lady
She received her Juris Doctor degree, cum laude, from Georgetown in 2012. She passed the California Bar in July 2012, and was admitted to the California Bar on December 11, 2012.
RE: I believe there is a word for such a woman who can be bought...................
Is it word used by Rush Limbaugh?
Stolen from another thread:
“Aborts her Congressional Bid”
"And if you don't like your genitals, you can get a free sex-change operation!"
And she lives where?
BTW this is how California got Nancy Pelosi.
How did that work out?
I wonder who called her off...
2 years, what a contribution, California will be lucky to get such an experienced fighter for 'rights'.
I’m not saying she should be elected but wondering how long it would be if she got elected before she would become a multi millionaire? Hmmmmm?
Some powerful Democrat changed her mind.
The Demokratik Peoples Republik of Kalifornia deserves Sandra.
I believe that the families and communities of this district — from West Hollywood to West L.A. and from Santa Monica to Torrance and beyond — deserve to have a fresh perspective from a new generation of progressive leadership in Sacramento, and I am eager to get to work fighting for the causes that matter most to our future as a community, state and nation,” Fluke said.
Lawyer Fluke can’t read a map: West LA and Santa Monica are not in District 28.
Bingo, we have a winner!
Question, why does the country keep electing such flakes? Many of our 'leaders' have never done anything successful in their lives and yet they keep getting elected. I would personally be embarrassed to be as stupid as many of our 'leaders'.
It's like Albert Einstein said, "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results".
She should fit in perfectly.
Neither is West Hollywood.
There are already too many whores in the Californicate Legislature
California State Senate seat is a gold mine every liberal wants it.
But no, Rush was in his 50s, and God's punishment (Fluke running for office with an actual chance to win because of angry folks who would vote for her just because she's the gal Limbaugh called a "slut") is a lot more harsh than Rush's mom's would have been.
On his radio show, Rush could have conveyed the same message objecting to Fluke in a more classy, gentlemanlike, Christian way. He ignored what he knew was right -- and these are the consequences.
Way to go, Rush.
Headline is wrong. She can afford it easily. She just wants someone else — you and I — to pay for it. Free stuff! The woman is a walking cliche.
Correction: Carpet back lady
let’s send her a case of condoms and half a dozen bottles of astroglide.That would get her off the campaign trail and onto her back for quite a while.
