Sandra Fluke crashes and burns in liberal West Los Angeles State Senate race

Sandra Fluke, whose sole qualification for public office was being called a slut by Rush Limbaugh, has had a very long 15 minutes of fame, but they may be over.  With 100 percent of the votes counted, she was decisively defeated by fellow Democrat Ben Allen, a veteran local school official, running for a seat left vacant by the retirement of incumbent State Senator Ted Lieu.  Here are the results from the California secretary of state's office:

Ms. Fluke originally sought to parlay her fleeting fame as a victim into a seat in Congress by running for the seat being vacated by the retirement of Henry Waxman.  The hubris of this woman moving from out of state and thinking she could waltz into Congress so offended local Democrats that she got herself out of the race and focused on a safe Democrat state senate district, the 26th.  California state senators actually have more constituents than congressmen, but they have to make do with Sacramento instead of D.C.

In California’s jungle primary system, the top two vote-getters run off in the general election, and Democrat-versus-Democrat races are not uncommon.  Reportedly, both Fluke and Allen spent a million dollars on the campaign.  Fluke, who married into a wealthy left-wing family, the Mutterperls of New York City, will have to find another way to extend her 15 long minutes.
