MURRAY COLLECTING $5 FOR WRONG CAUSE
Democrat Senator Patty Murray is soliciting $5 donations to fight Rush Limbaugh’s controversial remarks regarding birth control addict, Sandra Fluke. She could resolve the whole thing immediately by instead collecting $5 donations to pay for Sandra Fluke’s hefty contraceptive bill. THE MIKE REPORT.
MURRAY COLLECTS FIVE BUCKS TO FIGHT LIMBAUGH
The controversy over women’s health care coverage, and Rush Limbaugh’s character assassination of a Georgetown University law student, is driving the fund-raising of Democrats in the U.S. Senate. The Democratic Senate Campaign Committee, chaired by Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., has e-mailed an appeal keyed to Limbaugh’s description of student Sandra Fluke as a “slut” and a “prostitute.” “Personal attacks on a student — and all women — simply can’t be ignored,” said the appeal. “Stand with us, and denounce Rush Limbaugh’s vile attacks.”
Murray has sent out two e-mails to Washington donors, timed to a Senate vote on an amendment offered by Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Missouri. It would have allowed any employer, on grounds of moral objection, to deny birth control coverage to any woman employee. “We stopped them — this time: But you and I both know that this is FAR from the end of their desperate attempts to score political points,” Murray wrote after the Blunt amendment was tabled on a 51-48 Senate vote.
