A member of the Illinois delegation has sold out of a batch of pins she made that say "Sluts vote."

The pins, which cost 2 for $5, reference radio host Rush Limbaugh's attack on women's activist Sandra Fluke (he called her a "slut" for advocating that insurance plans fully cover contraceptives). We spotted several delegates on Thursday sporting the pins, which were made by delegate Barbara Brown.

Fluke addressed the DNC Wednesday during prime time. "I think 'slut' is offensive, that's why we're trying to own it and make it ours," said Debra Shore, an Illinois delegate from Chicago.
