Birth Control Activist Sandra Fluke Is Seriously Considering a Run for Congress

The woman who became semi-famous after Rush Limbaugh asked if she was a slut for demanding government-sponsored birth control looks to be very seriously considering a run for Congress.

Sandra Fluke has filed and paid the fee to obtain the endorsement of the California Democratic Party, although she has not officially entered the race to replace the retiring Henry Waxman in his west L.A. district.


A representative for Fluke told The Daily Caller, “It does not mean she is definitely running … it was a procedural step she had to take with the state party if she would want to be considered for their endorsement, it is not indicative of a final decision.”

The Georgetown grad moved to California and passed the bar exam two years ago, so she’s a legit candidate. And in the super liberal district she’s running in, she actually has a shot at winning. Think Malibu, Brentwood, and Beverly Hills. I mean, they’re probably not clamoring for free birth control in those neighborhoods, but they’re definitely Obama-voters, and you know how much Obama-voters love their promises of free stuff paid for by other people.

I kid, I kid. Er, um, well let’s just say there’s humor in truth.

No word yet on whether the former candidate for Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” is planning to fund her own race, or if she’ll want that paid for too.

Do you think Sandra Fluke would be a good addition to Congress?
