Gloria Allred seeks Rush Limbaugh prosecution

Rush Limbaugh has drawn the ire of celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred, who sent a letter to the Palm Beach County state attorney requesting an investigation into whether the popular radio host should be prosecuted for calling a law student a “slut” and “prostitute” last week.

“Mr. Limbaugh targeted his attack on a young law student who was simply exercised her free speech and her right to testify before congress on a very important issue to millions of American women and he vilified her. He defamed her and engaged in unwarranted, tasteless and exceptionally damaging attacks on her,” Allred told POLITICO Friday afternoon. “He needs to face the consequences of his conduct in every way that is meaningful.”




In a letter dated March 8, Allred, writing on behalf of the Women’s Equal Rights Legal Defense and Education Fund, requested that Palm Beach County State Attorney Michael McAuliffe probe whether the conservative radio personality had violated Section 836.04 of the Florida Statutes by calling Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke the two derogatory words.

The statute stipulates that anyone who “speaks of and concerning any woman, married or unmarried, falsely and maliciously imputing to her a want of chastity” is guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree. Allred explained that the statute recently came to her attention as having never been repealed, and that it could very well apply to Limbaugh’s remarks as his show is broadcast from West Palm Beach.

It is now entirely up to the prosecutor to exercise his discretion on whether there will be a prosecution. McAuliffe did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Allred, whose most recent high-profile clients have included Sharon Bialek, who accused Herman Cain of sexual harassment, and porn star Ginger Lee, who exchanged explicit emails with former Rep. Anthony Weiner, said Friday that she has not yet been in touch with Fluke.

“I don’t reach out to women, they reach rout to me,” she said. “If she did reach out to me, obviously I would respond.”

Limbaugh’s contentious remarks, made against Fluke for testifying on Capitol Hill about women’s access to contraception, resulted in widespread public outrage and dozens of advertisers pulling their commercials from his three-hour program.

“I understand why sponsors are abandoning Mr. Limbaugh in droves,” Allred said. “I think sponsors that remain with him are supporting him and providing commercial dollars to him and his program, condoning what he said.”

She added, “Hitting him economically is one price that he has to pay. He needs to be accountable in every way possible.”

kind of like abortion, or infanticide....their "right" is more important than another's.

They have the "right" to birth control/abortions, but want to further restrict the taxpayer's "right' to their religious beliefs and their "right" to spend their money as they see fit.

Liberals/progressives are not about protecting "rights", they are about forcing their will on others, in the name of "rights"

While I don't disagree with the intent of the well meaning law.. it's constitutionality would be in question.. .

and before the liberals chime in... the unConstitutional part is not the false and malicious..

Our Constitution was and is written to limit the government's ability to infringe upon our rights.. while still having enough control to limit undesirable behavior...

had more of the Declaration of Independence been enshrined in the Constitution.. most of these silly liberal arguments would be mute...


When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

there is so much wisdom in our Constitution and Declaration of Independence that is so often ignored.. together they shaped our nation.. yet legally only one is allowed to be used in court...

if our courts were required to allow "a decent respect to the opinions of mankind" to each party.. the outcome of many liberal causes would be dismissal and a reprimand to take it to the public to debate and decide..

Just as the public now debates the words of Sandra Fluke and Rush...

we know her words were hollow and fabricated.. and we know his words were wrong and malicious..

A fair recourse would be for the companies that chimed in to have an accountant look at the cost of taking sides..

if they profited from their action.. they owe fluke compensation..

if they lost money because of their actions.. oh well...

more then likely the net result.. nobody gets anything..

They tickle me, rush is the essence of pure evil, but abortion, infanticide, free this and free that, paint the roof white, don't buy what you can't afford, unless you are the gov't, vote often even if you're dead, are in the mainstream.
How long before abortion is legal if say you are 75 and a little feeble minded, had a stroke, and can't talk, or diabetes has cost you a foot? O. Yea, that was caused by my over use of sugar, so my bad!!!
