Sandra Fluke, target of Rush Limbaugh attack, to campaign with Keith Fitzgerald

Sandra Fluke, who was harshly criticized by radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh for her support of requiring insurance companies to cover the cost of birth control, will be in Lakewood Ranch on Saturday to endorse Keith Fitzgerald's run for Congress.

A news conference and rally are set for 5 to 6 p.m. at the Polo Grill and Bar ballroom, 10670 Boardwalk Loop. Also scheduled to speak is Barbara A. Zdravecky, president/CEO of Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida.

Limbaugh called Fluke, a Georgetown University law graduate, a "slut" and a "prostitute" for stating before Congress that insurance companies should be forced to cover the cost of birth control.

"Sandra Fluke will endorse Keith Fitzgerald's candidacy and talk about the importance of women's support to his campaign," a news release from Fitzgerald's campaign states. "She, Keith and Barbara Zdravecky will emphasize the critical issue of women's access to health care in this election and why women are supporting Keith Fitzgerald for Congress." Fitzgerald is running to unseat Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Sarasota, in the 16th Congressional District.


  1. Actually, if you don't mind conveying the truth, Limbaugh was making the point that Fluke, a 30 year old law student who testified that she could not possibly be expected to pay for her own birth control, was essentially stating that she should be compensated for her sexual practices. Limbaugh said that Fluke's ridiculous position was akin to her being a prostitute in that regard. Of course, he was doing his usual over-the-top style at making a point (he is an entertainer) and immediately backed off the language until the left jumped to their usual self-righteous indignation stance, despite the fact that Limbaugh's point was essentially valid.

  2. What if anything does she know about Fitzgerald?
    She just wants to support any democrat regardless of their stand. A true sheep that will do anything for a buck.

  3. What is she doing speaking at the Polo Club, thought that was a conservative, republican, stronghold?

  4. If there was any doubt of Fitzgerald's politics for the uninformed now they should know.
