Sandra Fluke Wants to Write Your Laws

Many in the Democratic Party–including those who occupy the big, white house at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue–believe that a person’s right to have someone else pay for birth control is so fundamental that it’s worth shutting down the Little Sisters of the Poor. Next time someone laments the rise of conservative “culture warriors” or trots out some lame trope about the GOP’s “war on women,” remember who the aggressors in that war are.

Which brings us to Sandra Fluke. It looks like Ms. Fluke–who courageously testified before Congress about the harrowing experience she and her classmates had of having to pay for their own contraception while attending Georgetown Law School (annual tuition: $50,890)–is running Congress! The Washington Post has the story:

Women’s rights activist Sandra Fluke appears to be moving forward with a run for Congress.

Fluke has filed with the California state Democratic Party to seek its endorsement in the race for retiring Rep. Henry Waxman’s (D-Calif.) seat, according to the state party Web site.

A state party delegate confirmed to Post Politics that Fluke has filed and paid the fee to appear on the ballot this weekend.

Fluke hasn’t officially announced her campaign or filed with the Federal Election Commission, and she didn’t immediately return a request for comment. But filing for the state party’s endorsement means she’s now officially part of the process.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: today’s Democratic Party is not your grandfather’s Democratic Party.

    Our libertarian GOP congressman does not represent my moderate views.

  • Paul H.

    The Tea Party has ruined the GOP. They are DONE as a national party.

    • Antonio A. Badilla

      Why? Because they stand for principles at a time when we have an unprincipled President?

    • wheaton4prez

      Hah. On what basis do you make this claim?

      Several tea party leaders have been elected to office by voters. The GOP looks like they could take control of the Senate.

      The evidence suggests that the Tea Party has helped the GOP, despite the dishonest characterizations of it coming from the left.


    I liked Ike!

    Catholics in this district should vote in the Democratic primary against Ms. Fluke so she loses badly.

    And, the GOP/Tea Party is not my grandfather’s GOP. And, if they don’t get off the the social obsession dime and strike a new blow on the real issues they are destined to lose in 2016.

    Well, if nothing else, she should have interesting campaign slogans.
