Fresh from her speaking engagement at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown Law Student, spoke to 10 people in the parking lot of the Reno, Nevada Sak ‘N Save on Silverada Blvd. The event, held Saturday, was part of an effort to get Nevadans to the polls on the first day of early voting.
She has been campaign in support of President Obama’s re-election campaign, which described the rally as an “intimate gathering. A campaign photo showed Fluke talking to a few people within the confines of a parking space.
“I’m trying to do everything I can for an election that I feel is very important,” she told the Reno Gazette-Journal.
Fluke became known earlier this year when she spoke before a House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee in support of mandated contraception coverage. Rush Limbaugh referred to her as a “slut” on his radio program following her comments.
