Sandra Fluke’s Appearance Is No Fluke

Posted by on Mar 02, 2012 at 10:49 am

For me the interesting part of the story is the ever-evolving “coed”. I put that in quotes because in the beginning she was described as a Georgetown law student. It was then revealed that prior to attending Georgetown she was an active women’s right advocate. In one of her first interviews she is quoted as talking about how she reviewed Georgetown’s insurance policy prior to committing to attend, and seeing that it didn’t cover contraceptive services, she decided to attend with the express purpose of battling this policy. During this time, she was described as a 23-year-old coed. Magically, at the same time Congress is debating the forced coverage of contraception, she appears and is even brought to Capitol Hill to testify. This morning, in an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show, it was revealed that she is 30 years old, NOT the 23 that had been reported all along.

In other words, folks, you are being played. She has been an activist all along and the Dems were just waiting for the appropriate time to play her.

While she is described as a “third year law student” they always fail to mention that she is also the past president of Law Students for Reproductive Justice.

July 30 2011

Does your campus’s LSRJ chapter face opposition in regard to facilitating a comprehensive conversation about reproductive justice? Well mine definitely does! While my campus has a mix of people with different backgrounds, and a rich liberal arts community, the Midwest doesn’t exactly scream bleeding liberal. Some LSRJ chapters at conservative campuses face opposition in the form of other, more conservative, student run organizations; some face it from their administrations, and others from their peers, or the community in general. Whatever the opposition is, it can be incredibly frustrating and disheartening.

The question is, how do we combat this conservative opposition and oppression, in order to facilitate a discussion and educate others about the RJ movement? I am obviously not alone in facing these problems, as Sandra Fluke of Georgetown lead a packed room in a discussion on this question at the first Issue Caucus that I attended at the Leadership Institute, LSRJ’s national conference at Berkeley.

While no solution was definitively reached, and I personally don’t begin to have the “right” answer, I was really charged by the discussion and feel many great ideas were presented. Some campus chapters decided to take an adversarial approach, feeling it important to use those “scary” words the opposition fears.

Further background research on Ms Fluke reveals that she got her start in government in New York in 2009.

Sandra Fluke’s professional background in domestic violence and human trafficking began with Sanctuary for Families in New York City. There, she launched the agency’s pilot Program Evaluation Initiative. While at Sanctuary, she co-founded the New York Statewide Coalition for Fair Access to Family Court, which after a twenty-year stalemate, successfully advocated for legislation granting access to civil orders of protection for unmarried victims of domestic violence, including LGBTQ victims and teens. Sandra was also a member of the Manhattan Borough President’s Taskforce on Domestic Violence and numerous other New York City and New York State coalitions that successfully advocated for policy improvements impacting victims of domestic violence.

As the 2010 recipient of the Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles Fran Kandel Public Interest Grant, she researched, wrote, and produced an instructional film on how to apply for a domestic violence restraining order in pro per. She has also interned with the Coalition to Abolish Slavery & Trafficking; Polaris Project; Neighborhood Legal Services of Los Angeles County; Break the Cycle; the Domestic Violence Legal Empowerment and Appeals Project; NOW Legal Defense and Education Fund; Crime Victim and Sexual Assault Services; and the Human Services Coalition of Tompkins County.

Through Georgetown’s clinic programs, Sandra has proposed legislation based on fact-finding in Kenya regarding child trafficking for domestic work, and has represented victims of domestic violence in protection order cases. Sandra is the Development Editor of the Journal of Gender and the Law, and served as the President of Law Students for Reproductive Justice, and the Vice President of the Women’s Legal Alliance. In her first year, she also co-founded a campus committee addressing human trafficking. Cornell University awarded her a B. S. in Policy Analysis & Management, as well as Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies in 2003.

My only question is, how does someone go from being a champion of domestic violence issues to an expert of women’s reproductive health issues?

and the $1,000 (or $3,000 - I’ve read conflicting reports)

It was $3k for the three year duration of the law degree, or $1K per year.

Rush just needs to edit his comments by now calling her a 30 yr old LYING slut-—just like her dear president that supports her.

I don’t know about the rest of you on this thread but I could swear I’ve seen this “girl” somewhere before, I just can’t place it. That face of her’s is very familiar.

Unless she skipped undergraduate school, she couldn’t be a 3L at 23. Assuming she entered college right out of high school, went for 4 years, and then entered law school right away, then she would have to be at least 25 years old to be a 3rd year law student. 24 possibly, but not 23.

This pig was the best they could do??

They get their story out with the appropriate outrage, the truth will never see light of day in the MSM, mission accomplished.

Have you seen one headline story on Sheriff Joe's Proof, that did not include "Widely Discredited Theory?"

I think the ultimate goal is to have Planned Parenthood in every school in the country....private or public.

My hometown just voted to give free condoms to high schoolers....along with attached services. Since it came about becuase of the local HIV and disease stats, i'd say we're promoting gays and "women's needs" at the same time.

Most schools don't have a full time school nurse but they have money to hire "sex counselors"??? God help us.

Notice the second last paragraph of the posting...mentioning Kenya....There's a coincidence!!

Had to look and see if this was a John Semmens posting.

“men trying to demean women”, which the “slut” term certainly did.

Ok Charles, I guess a woman testifying before Congress on National TV, that she in fact is a self described slut, doesn't count, in your book. Women who want to be sluts, don't seem to need our help.....Student Sues College, Says Roommate's Active Sex Life Drove Her To Deep Depression...

“Rush handed the enemy a bat and they are beating us bloody with it.”


I know where you two are going with this. I do.

You believe this “Slut” incident is yet another diversionary tactic being used by the liberals against the SoCons to get us to lose focus on the real issues. This all began with George Steffie bringing contraception and the Catholic Church into the national consciousness. Now everyone is all chosing sides over Fluke v. Limbaugh.

And add in a healthy dose of Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Birthergate, and we are right where they want us, right?


There is very little economic difference between liberals and the RINO’s in Washington these days. The only hope we have to make a real change for our country and turn it aroud is with social issues.

Like being outraged with a slut like Fluke.

And if that gets us bloody, beaten and defeated in November, so be it. We sure ain’t gonna win on the tax and economic conerns. Only if and when we have leaders with the moral integrity to stand up and call a spade a spade will we then have a leader with the correct economic sense as well.

Another thing to look at is just how brazen the dems were, knowing well that all this would come out. They knew from the very beginning that all this would be hidden by the ministry of propaganda (formerly known as the "main-stream media), and other than alternate media and conservative talk shows, they know they have nothing to worry about. The fact that they perpetrated a fraud will never be revealed to the vast majority of the American public. The fact that it was a bunch of dems running the circus where she "testified" means she wasn't under oath and wasn't actually testifying before congress, so no laws were broken.

They're playing the majority of the American public as what they are... Useful idiots. And even when they're informed, they don't care.

Keep in mind that women make up the majority of the tea party.

And they are too stupid to know what they pay for the Pill? Right.

Stephanopolous got an inside track on this in time for the debates. This info needs to get out. If you haven’t passed it along to your email list, what are you waiting for?

and he would still have all his advertisers.

You have no clue do you? His price probably will go up, and he never has to worry about customers.
