Where Did Sandra Fluke Get $100K?

Is it just me or does this look a little bit like campaign finance fraud?

    Liberal darling and free-birth-control advocate Sandra Fluke is her own biggest donor in her state Senate race, according to official California campaign finance reports.

    Fluke donated $12,000 to her campaign and $4,826.27 in non-monetary contributions. While $16,826.27 may not sound like a lot, Fluke also loaned her campaign $100,000.

    Where does a 2012 law school grad working as a social justice attorney get a loan that size? Her campaign never responded to a Washington Examiner inquiry, so we’re left to speculate.

The Examiner piece by Ashe Schow speculates that her husband’s family may be the source of the money. Maybe.

Loans are often considered equivalent to contributions and while loaning yourself money is one thing, things get trickier when you’re loaned money that you then loan to your own campaign.

It’s not unusual for politicians to loan money to their own campaigns. It’s actually fairly common since a lot of the people running for office can afford it. It allows them to then cash in by repaying their own loans to themselves with interest, a shady practice.

Fluke’s opponent lent herself a $100K. But unless Sandra Fluke had that kind of money lying around, there are questions to be asked about where she got it. Did she take out a loan, as is the standard practice? What did she use for collateral?

Did it come out of the savings of their family? Or did it come from outside?

In any case, Fluke’s hard luck story looks shakier than ever.

Time for some sleuthing!
Trump does not represent the will of the people.  If we really wanted to respect the decision of "the people," then Clinton would be the president-elect, not Trump, for the simple reason that she won the popular vote.

Any woman who has enough sex that she feels the need to involve the government and actually demands that the nation subsidize her apparently massive birth control bills, would most likely not have much difficulty coming up with some extra cash.

She couldn't afford to spend that much.

On her back, on her knees or a mouthful at a time.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
