Here are two words bound to send shivers down your spine: Congresswoman Fluke.
Sandra Fluke, who became an instant celebrity when she was denied the opportunity to testify at an all-male hearing on Obamacare’s contraception requirements, is “strongly considering” a bid for Rep. Henry Waxman’s Congressional seat, according to KPCC, a a Southern California radio station.
“I’m flattered that I’m being discussed as a potential candidate,” she told the station. “A number of folks I respect very deeply have reached out today and encouraged me to run. I am strongly considering running.”
Fluke rose to stardom in 2012 as a Georgetown Law student, when she was denied the chance to testify at a Republican-led House oversight hearing on Obamacare’s contraception coverage requirements. The controversy went viral when conservation radio host Rush Limbaugh called her a “prostitute” and a “slut” because of her need for birth control.
Fluke quickly become a celebrity for the left and an outspoken advocate for women’s health rights. She even received a speaking spot at the Democratic National Convention last in 2012, as Democrats emphasized their contention that Republicans had mounted a “war on women.”
