Where Did Sandra Fluke Get $100K?
FrontPage Mag ^ | 07/30/2014 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 07/30/2014 8:19:21 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Is it just me or does this look a little bit like campaign finance fraud?

Liberal darling and free-birth-control advocate Sandra Fluke is her own biggest donor in her state Senate race, according to official California campaign finance reports.

Fluke donated $12,000 to her campaign and $4,826.27 in non-monetary contributions. While $16,826.27 may not sound like a lot, Fluke also loaned her campaign $100,000.

Where does a 2012 law school grad working as a social justice attorney get a loan that size? Her campaign never responded to a Washington Examiner inquiry, so we’re left to speculate.

The Examiner piece by Ashe Schow speculates that her husband’s family may be the source of the money. Maybe.

AND, if she has $116k to donate to her campaign, why can’t she pay for her own birth control?

Good question. But her response would be : “It’s not about me. I’m fighting for the poor women who can’t afford it.”

Excellent question. How can she be out there bitching about how unaffordable birth control is, when she has all this money????

It would take Fluke a whole lot of whoring to get that kind of money.

To: All
A Democrat slush fund, no doubt---subsidizing Sandra "my crotch-itches" Fluke. Obama's obsessive non-stop fund raising----is beginning to look sinister. The world smolders but the Dumbcrat ding-a-lings soldier on raising funds.

REALITY CHECK Could this be a WH/Democrat Ponzi scheme in progress?

While they bash Wall Street publicly, leaders of the Democrats' mega-funder "The Democracy Alliance" have quietly recruited venture capitalists, bankers and hedge fund moguls -- along with union bosses and red-diaper trust fund babies -- to fund their takeover goals. ....$230,000 public school union dues go to the Democrats' "Democracy Alliance."

"The Democracy Alliance" does not itself raise and spend a great deal of money. Rather, being a partner in the Alliance requires one to contribute large amounts to other left-wing groups. The Alliance evaluates left-wing organizations on various criteria, and makes recommendations to its members as to where they should put their money. Currently, the Alliance lists 21 groups in its “Aligned Network”:

<><> America Votes, American Constitution Society, Black Civic Engagement Fund, Brennan Center, Catalyst, Center for American Progress, Center for Community Change, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, Common Purpose Project, Fund for the Republic, Latino Engagement Fund, Media Matters for America, New Media Ventures, New Organizing Institute, Organizing For Action, Progressive Majority, Progress Now, State Engagement Initiative, State Voices, Women’s Equality Center and Youth Engagement Fund.<><>

The most interesting of the D/A documents that have come to light is the one that contains D/A’s “investment recommendations” for 2014. Not only does it list the recommended organizations, but it rates each organization in several categories, sets out the group’s budget for 2014, and shows how much of that budget should be contributed by the 100 members of the "Democracy Alliance." One category in which DA rates the organizations is “Collaboration,” as DA believes that all left-wing groups should coordinate their activities for maximum political impact.

Opportunistic pols like Harry Reid have denounced Charles and David Koch, and others, who contribute to conservative causes as “shadowy,” “secretive” people who dare infest politics with “dark money.”

In that context, it is worth noting that most of the groups to which the Alliance and its elite liberal members contribute are 501(c)(4)s that do not disclose their donors.

===============================================

ANALYSIS Buncha sap-happy Dummy/dopes are feeding the Democrats' Democracy Alliance lotsa money---thinking its safe.....going to a "good thing."

That's exactly how Madoff operated. Money-laundering, tax evasion was part of the Madoff mix---helping investors, foundations, and tax-exempts break the law in a seemingly legal way.

=====================================================

Madoff helped himself to the untraceable money in the process.....and got himself in trouble. When he went to jail for 125 years, investigators found Ponzi King Madoff had stashed billions offshore---into a labyrinth of financial entities.

COLLUSION AND CONSPIRACIES GALORE Some $8.9 billion was funneled to Madoff through a dozen so-called feeder funds based in Europe, the Caribbean and Central America......a labyrinth of hedge funds, management companies and service providers that, to unsuspecting outsiders, seemed to compose a formidable system of checks and balances.

But the purpose of this complex financial architecture was just the opposite: the feeder funds provided different modes for directing money to Madoff in order to avoid scrutiny.

Dummycrats apparently took notes.

My guess is that she got some under-the-table consulting money for screwing with Republicans in the 2012 elections.

She’s now trying to launder it to keep from having to pay taxes. What her campaign finance disclosures won’t show is that she’s very likely writing off most of her expenses: abode, utilities, car, insurance, consulting, and a whole mess of other specious expenses.

Reminds me of The Weiner and his short-lived run for Mayor. He had $4.5 Million left over in Congressional campaign funds he had to spend - guess where? Relatives as consultants? Million dollars+ Apartment on the park? ‘Consulting’ fees? Just guessing here, but if you scammed it right, you could convert at least half of it to personal legal cash.

So, a couple of years ago this tramp couldn't afford $10 a month for birth control pills and now she is able to give her campaign $16K and loan it another $100K (which the campaign can repay her WITH INTEREST).

If a pro-life conservative did this the media would be demanding every bank statement since birth to see where the money came from.

Just using the figure of 100,000, and dividing it be the approximately 9 dollars a month it costs for birth control, she could afford to pay for 11,111 years.

Like Obama, Fluke doesn't care what people think about her. Like him, she has her socialist, marxist agenda laid out and is busily setting about fulfilling it.

Similar to the Messiah, she's got her eye on the ball, has her law degree in her pocket and now, with her candidacy, is taking her first step toward public office where she can implement her ideological goals.

She will continue to be the butt of scorn and jokes, her financial backing will be questioned.....but she will carry on like a bull dog as all radicals do.

Whether she is elected to this first office or not will not stop her, however, chances are she will win. When clowns like Pelosi, Franken, Waters keep getting elected or re-elected it's not much of a stretch to see her movin' on up in elective Democrat positions of power.

She is no dummy, either. Her success at PR plus her very craziness brought her where she is today, a candidate for office, and she'll adjust her tactics and hystrionics accordingly as she sets sail on her leftist political career.

I also think she chose the right state to run for state senate (even though she’s from Pennsylvania ). The folks in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Sacramento LOVE someone like this.

Hey out there!

Fluke was always able to “pay for her own birth control”.
That was never the issue.

The issue was that she wanted to force her religiously affiliated college (Georgetown U) to offer all contraceptives on their student health insurance plan, even those that some people consider to cause abortion.

The issue was exactly the same as the Hobby Lobby case. She wanted to force a supposedly religious employer to not be allowed to freely exercise their religion.

This is the whole crux of all these cases ... to undermine the 1st Amendment and especially the free exercise clause (not to get “free” birth control).

Limbaugh did a great disservice by distracting from the real goal of these people.
