VIDEO: Limbaugh proposes $50k bounty for proof of sexual harassment by Politico employees
The Daily Caller ^ | 11/05/2011 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 11/05/2011 10:38:53 AM PDT by martosko

On his Friday radio program, radio talker Rush Limbaugh proposed using the website Politico’s rules against the news outlet by finding a “Republican Larry Flynt” to offer a bounty to anyone who can document sexual harassment among members of the media — specifically at Politico.

“If we had a Republican Larry Flynt — this guy, I would urge him to wave around $50,000 for proof of sexual harassment at Politico,” Limbaugh said. “I mean, that’s what Larry Flynt does. He waves around $100,000, $50,000 for proof of sex with a Republican. So if we had a Republican Larry Flynt — you want strategy Mr. Gregory? I got one. We have our Larry Flynt offer $50,000 for any news, any proof, quote, unquote ‘proof’ of sexual harassment at the Politco office. And we can win it because the rules have been established by Politico. The truth is whatever the accuser says."

I don’t think you can find a single company in America with over 500 employees, who has never paid off a female employee.

May I make a slight correction?

I don’t think you can find a single company in America with over 500 50 employees, who has never paid off a female employee.

I'm not sure the number wouldn't be much lower.

Being an employer in the US is becoming less and less fun every month. There are times when I just want to shut the doors and go fishing.

From what I read he isn’t offering the money. He’s giving an example of having ‘our’ Larry Flint do it. Whoever that person would be.

Nah!!! Love ya Rush, but the heck with that idea of yours and Cain law suits against Politico too!!! Politico has enough problem, self-created, I might add!!! Jonathan Martin, the Politico “dirt bag”, closely observed, is not wrapped too tight!!! Poor dude looks like he needs professional help!!! So....does Politico, for that matter!!! The lamestream media, across the board, including Fox News Channel looks lost!!! And.......tomorrow, all the TV news shows will make complete idiots out of themselves entertaining the Politico “dirt bags”!!! However, the good news for these idiot news shows is that no one will be watching them making fools and buffoons out of themselves. You think FNC would be smart enough to kill off the Politico appearance, but evidently, they are not. Should be fun as they sink themselves even deeper in the American public’s mind!!! Me, I never watch “em!!! To me, it is just “Dumb & Dumber” over & over again!!! Would rather have breakfast at IHOP and flirt with the waitresses!!! Yummy!!! Chris Wallace or IHOP??? Which would you prefer???

LOL, been there done that. I was in business in Atlanta, the good old government raised the withholding tax. I said screw them, two years later, I was on a farm in Virginia. Let somebody else worry about the damn payroll.

Who can blame you. Lots of people just plain old suck. Too many leexhes and drama queens-—both genders. Give the decent ones a bad rap.

Rush should know that you don't need proof - all you need is an unsubstantiated allegation.

There isn’t enough money in the world to pay $50,000 a wack to pay a bounty on finding sexual perverts in the Democrat party!

For the same reason many of us won't. It is good conversation but a stupid use of money. 50K puts a man on the payroll for a year.

I heard Rush doing this bit yesterday. The humorous thing about it was that the money would never actually have to be paid because the accuser would never have to actually exist according to “Politico Rules”.

The accuser never need reveal themselves, and anything they say is automatically infallible according to the way they conduct a lynching over at Politico.

Ahem, "Illustrate absurdity by being absurd"

You obviously don't listen to Rush much, do you?

WE Conservatives also have a sense of humor...

I know a guy who was charged with sexual harassment because when he passed a female employee in a tight space in the copy room his leg brushed her skirt, not her leg but her skirt. He beat the charge but eventually quit the job and moved to another company because of the gossip that he had to face day after day.

I know a lawyer who stopped to help a couple whose car appeared to be broken down in the rain. The husband asked the lawyer if he could give his wife a lift to the gas station down the street. The lawyer said yes, when they got to the station, the woman said "Nice Rolex you have there, give it to me or I will report that you tried to grope me." He gave her the watch.

His felling was that 10K is a cheap out.

Or join the 24/7 club where you can view Rush’s show, via the dittocam, after work on the P/C. You can even fast forward through the adds/commercials and parodies if you want to just watch Rush’s on camera work.

I've been pretty disappointed with Rush since he got married. He seems to go on and on about one issue rather than covering several in a show. I don't think he is putting in the show prep he used to put in.

He won’t do that it would require some work which would take away from his whinning. :)

Why no I haven't, what are they? My day starts at 5Am, my day ends when I get finished. On occasion I get an opportunity to listen to Rush, but, not as often as some. As for taping them, if I was that interested I would have Rush 24. Rush has made his billion, I'm still working on mine. Maybe after that I will take the afternoon off to listen to him.
