Sandra Fluke: Why woman Rush Limbaugh called 'prostitute' is speaking at DNC
Months ago, Sandra Fluke made headlines when Rush Limbaugh called her a "slut" and "prostitute."
"What does it say about the college coed Susan [sic] Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex? What does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex," he said.
At the time, Fluke was testifying on the limited contraceptive coverage in Georgetown's University's insurance plan.
(Limbaugh later apologized, saying he "chose the wrong words.")
Since the Limbaugh incident, she's become a prominent women's activist taking on male personalities in media today. Here she talks about life post-Limbaugh.
Recently, Bill O'Reilly suggested that condoms will fall from the convention roof on her.
Fluke had a response ready. “I think it’s clearly offensive to see a bunch of guys sitting around laughing about dropping condoms on a woman,” Fluke said on MSNBC’s “The Ed Show” on Monday. “Obviously, that’s offensive. But I try to just not pay attention to it, look past it and focus on the policies that I care about.”
Tonight, she is speaking at the DNC. The feminist superstar is key to the Obama campaign, because she reminds people of Republican's so-called "war on women" and is an advocate for birth control, a pillar of Obamacare.
