Judie Brown writes of Sandra Fluke in a Feb. 10 CNSNews.com column:
Nobody knew who she was until February of 2012 when Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her colleagues on the House Steering Committee held a special hearing concerning the religious exemption on contraceptive coverage contained in the then-newly introduced Obama mandate.
The only person called to testify at this hearing was Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke. This was to be the first time we would hear her name, but it certainly was not to be the last.
Fluke became the instant darling of feminists and the liberal media. Her unapologetic attack on people of faith who object to the Obama birth control mandate made her immediately welcome.
First, Brown fails to explain why that one-person hearing took place: House Republicans had blocked Fluke from testifying at an earlier hearing on the contraceptive mandate.
Second, one very important person is missing from Brown's timeline: Rush Limbaugh. It was his three-day tirade of misogyny and sleazy attacks against Fluke -- not her testimony -- that made her an "instant darling."
