Sandra Fluke campaigns for President Obama, only 10 people show up, media calls it ‘center stage’

Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown law student who stirred controversy earlier this year when she told Democrats that coeds were going broke buying contraception, attracted a crowd of 10 people at a Sak ‘N Save grocery story in Reno, Nevada, on Saturday.

That is NOT a typo: 10.

The Reno Gazette Journal is reporting that only people were in attendance, but was criticized by Newsbusters for “center stage” title.

“Fluke’s references to receiving comments from “a lot of women” and “young people” are hard to take seriously, given that the standard for “a lot” on the left and among its press apparatchiks appears to have fallen to “about 10,” writes Tom Blumer.

“I’m trying to do everything I can for an election that I feel is very important. I have a unique opportunity for how I get to do that,” said Fluke at the event.


“A lot of women come to me and tell me stories individually about their lives about what access to healthcare has meant to them; what the Affordable Care Act is going to mean to them,” she said. “A lot of young people tell me how important it was to stay on their parents plan until they were 26. Folks tell me what a difference it made to be able to rely on Planned Parenthood when they needed it and what it would mean if Mr. Romney gets his way to defund Planned Parenthood.”

Newsbusters also point out that the paper quotes one of the ten, saying he wanted to hear the woman who had faced “intimidating rhetoric against as a political tactic.”
