Sandra Fluke considers running for Henry Waxman’s House seat

[Ed. – Can’t make this stuff up.]

Sandra Fluke, who became an instant celebrity when she was denied the opportunity to testify at a hearing on Obamacare’s contraception requirements, is “strongly considering” a bid for Rep. Henry Waxman’s congressional seat, according to KPCC, a Southern California radio station.

“I’m flattered that I’m being discussed as a potential candidate,” she told the station. “A number of folks I respect very deeply have reached out today and encouraged me to run. I am strongly considering running.”

Fluke’s LinkedIn account describes her as a “social justice advocate” in the “greater Los Angeles area” and she’s active on Twitter promoting causes related to women’s health, safety and equality. She also tweeted Thursday to congratulate Waxman on his retirement.

“A sincere thank you to liberal champion @WaxmanClimate for 40 years of service to our community in LA,” she wrote. She didn’t tweet about any interest she had in becoming a candidate and did not respond to a request for comment made via her spokesman.
