Bill O’Reilly broke a big story last night with the news that Sandra Fluke is represented by the Public Relations group SKDKnickerbocker, where Anita Dunn is managing editor. Imagine, Sandra Fluke, just a nice Liberal 30 year old gal, still a law student with her heart attuned to the costly problem of birth control and gender reassignment, needing a Public Relations firm. Anita Dunn was Obama’s Communications Director until she said the two people she admired most for their philosopy was Mother Teresa and…Mao Tse Tung. As Dunn shepherds Fluke along, keep in mind that Dunn’s connection to the White House is much, much deeper than her former job. The real tie is her husband. Read on.
At that time, Dunn’s husband Robert Bauer, was Obama’s personal attorney, the campaign attorney for Obama for America and chief counsel for the DNC. At the time Dunn exposed herself, Bauer was in transition to the White House to replace Greg Craig who on behalf of Obama, illegally fired Inspector General Gerald Walpin. Rep. Steve King (R-IA) claims Bauer was hired to ‘erase tracks’ between Obama and ACORN. Robert Bauer left his White House job in June 2011.
Now, late today we found out that Ms. Fluke is now being repped by the progressive PR agency SKDKnickerbocker where Anita Dunn, the former Obama communications director is the managing editor… a-ha.So, this whole deal comes back to the White House, at least indirectly. So, let’s run down what we know. Sandra Fluke is a former head of the group “Georgetown University Law Students for Reproductive Justice.” On February 9th, a group called “The Feminist Majority Foundation” arranged for Sandra to appear at press conference criticizing the Catholic bishops for objecting to President Obama’s contraception mandate.After that, Congressman Elijah Cummings, the former Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, invited Sandra to testify in front of the House Oversight Committee. But she was turned down by the chair, Congressman Darrell Issa, because she had no expertise in the church/state subject matter.Nevertheless, Ms. Fluke went to the hearing and afterward complained to ABC News that she had been denied. A week later, Nancy Pelosi staged a mock hearing starring Sandra. After which Rush Limbaugh made derogatory comments elevating her to left-wing martyrdom.So it seems there is a powerful presence behind Sandra Fluke. And as the polls show the controversy has benefited the President of the United States, who is on the ropes with the church deal. This is all the more amazing because the controversy Sandra is embracing is completely bogus as I explained on “The View” today.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online)– According to Gutowski, Fluke “apparently, believes that it is discrimination deserving of legal action if ‘gender reassignment’ surgeries are not covered by employer provided health insurance.”In an article that Fluke co-edited with Karen Hu in the Georgetown Journal of Gender and the Law, entitled “Employment Discrimination Against LGBTQ Persons,” there is a subsection of the article entitled “Employment Discrimination in Provision of Employment Benefits.” Both Fluke and her co-editor describe two forms of discrimination in benefits that they believe LGBTQ individuals face in the work place.”Discrimination typically takes two forms: first, direct discrimination limiting access to benefits specifically needed by LGBTQ persons, and secondly, the unavailability of family-related benefits to LGBTQ families.”Their “prime example” of discrimination, according to Fluke and Hu is not covering sex change operations.
