Eleanor Norton falsely claims she’s being Fluked by House Republicans


D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton is channeling her inner Fluke to cry victim about the way she’s being treated by the House Subcommittee on the Constitution. She desperately wants to testify in defense of late term abortions—sorry, “D.C. autonomy”—at a hearing today, but the majority Republican panel isn’t interested in her yammering.

Man, those GOP meanies sure do hate the womenfolk. Especially noted GOPers Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), Michael Quigley (D-Ill.), John Conyers, Jr (D-Mich.), and Bobby Scott (D-Va.)

Those Democrats have a discretionary witness slot that could have been used for Norton’s testimony. Apparently, they’re just not that into her.

Instead, Norton was invited to submit written testimony and the panel will hear from Christy Zink, a professor who had a late term abortion after discovering complications with her pregnancy. But cue the outrageous outrage from the sisterhood!

they're trying to silence @EleanorNorton testimony 4 #DC women the way @DarrellIssa tried w/ me #WeWillNotBeSilenced http://t.co/75hskoHN

Aw, precious. She’s still pretending that she was “silenced.” Honey, it’s time to embrace the term “unqualified.”

Just like @SandraFluke, DC's @EleanorNorton has been denied a chance to testify on women's health. #letDCspeak http://t.co/zncq5UDs

House GOP not allowing @EleanorNorton (D-DC) to testify on #GOP bill assaulting women's health in #DC: http://t.co/pDzWkbW7 #Shameful

No, former Speaker. The assault on “women’s health” is coming from you and your fellow cheerleaders for abortion after the 20 week mark.

It's mystifying that Rep. Norton would be denied the chance to testify on a #GOP bill that would hurt the women of DC. http://t.co/Q3IUBkG1

Reps in Congress elected 2 speak on behalf of people, your rep should not b sidelined! Let DC Rep @EleanorNorton speak on DC women’s health!

I stand w/ DC’s Rep. @EleanorNorton, urge House #GOP to allow her to testify on bill attacking women's health in #DC

Funny, none of the Dems on the subcommittee took to Twitter to crow about silencing the wimmenz. Shouldn’t these legislators be asking, “When—when?!—will the Democratic patriarchy end this War on Women?”
