Sandra Fluke ran for Congress in California, and lost—to another Democrat!
The face of the Obamacare contraception mandate has lost her bid for state Senate in California’s 26th Congressional District.
Sandra Fluke was facing off against another Democrat, Ben Allen, who is a board member of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District.
The women’s rights activist received 39 percent of the vote while Allen won with 61 percent.
In the War on Women, sweetheart, you just became France! That was a spanking.
I had forgotten she was running for office, as indeed did many liberals.
My career has always been devoted to the public interest and fighting for social justice.
Career? What career? She came to the public eye only because she had the ‘nads to demand that a Catholic institution at which she was a mere student pay for her birth control. If that’s a “career” what box does she check on the census under “Profession” (other than “professional”—sorry, sorry, bad joke)?
I believed it was my responsibility to use the microphone I was given to advocate for the progressive policies I’ve always fought for: affordable health care, access to a quality education, LGBTQ rights and economic justice.
What, no rubbers?
Sandra graduated cum laude [wipe that smirk off your face] from Georgetown University Law Center as a Public Interest Law Scholar with a Certificate in Refugee and Humanitarian Emergencies. In 2003, she received a B.S. [wipe that one off too] from Cornell University in Policy Analysis and Management, as well as Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies [I'll bet she did]. Sandra and her husband, Adam, live in West Hollywood with their dog, Mr. President.
No kids, huh? Well, give those two lovebirds time. Can’t keep their hands off each other.
For more than two years, Sandra worked with a grassroots coalition to pass the California Domestic Worker Bill of Rights, which was signed into law by Governor Brown in 2013 and is designed to ensure domestic workers have the same protections that other workers enjoy. At the Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking in Los Angeles, Sandra is one of the longest running volunteer attorneys representing victims of human trafficking. She has advocated for student loan debt relief, access to early childhood education and for raising the minimum wage.
I stand corrected. If “volunteer attorney” at the “Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking” isn’t partnership track, I don’t know what is. Her dog may be Mr. President, but alas she will not be Congresswoman Fluke.
