The event took place at the Lost Dog Cafe on Water Street and was not open to the public.
Fluke became the focus of verbal attacks by Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh and others after she testified on behalf of the plan to Democratic members of the House. She had previously been denied the chance to testify before the House Oversight and Reform Committee.
Fluke spoke at this year's Democratic National Convention and has stumped for President Obama at several events throughout the country.
