Posted on 03/09/2012 10:37:31 AM PST by Catsrus
Gloria Allred has sent a letter to Denise Nieman, the County Prosecutor in West Palm Beach, Florida, on behalf of the Womens Equal Rights Legal Defense and Education Fund, asking for an investigation into whether Rush Limbaugh violated Florida defamation law when he called Sandra Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute." Allred cites Section 836.04 of Florida Statute, which says that "whoever speaks of and concerning any woman, married or unmarried, falsely and maliciously imputing to her a want of chastity, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree."
This is not going to go anywhere, except as a publicity stunt.
Limbaugh statement’s weren’t false.
You misspelled “Persecute”...
Is she going after Bill Maher, David Letterman and the other fowl mouth Aholes?
What a c****!
“whoever speaks of and concerning any woman, married or unmarried, falsely and maliciously imputing to her a want of chastity, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree.” ............. So, if it is true, no crime, right?
Fluke is a harlot. That was the core of her testimony.
If she's taking up for your cause - you get to be the clown in the center ring.
Oh good Lord, this bitch has surfaced.
Oh, give it up already liberals! It’s going nowhere.
This is rich, coming from Gloria!
The law only applies to women and is therefore UNCONSTITUTIONAL! Happy 14th Amendment Gloria.
Plus... this Fluke lady doesn’t live in Florida where the law applies???
I'm actually very much in favor of the government profiding free condoms and birth
control pills for all lawyers and law students if it will keep them from reproducing.
....where has your judgement gone? Getting into a scrap with Rush?....ask Dingy Harry how that goes...
...besides...Rush is smarter than you are, has smarter friends, smarter lawyers, more money and more friends with a few bucks to help with a defense fund....just so we can participate in destroying you.
...as the old saying goes:
..better be careful of what your wish for, you may get it.
Lol! Where did Allred dig this little gem up? Was it right next to the Florida Statute, which says that “whoever speaks ill of and concerning a gentleman’s mother, said gentleman shall have the right to challenge by duel with firearm or sword?
He didn’t call her a prostitute or a slut. He merely asked the question about what a woman who expected other people to pay for her sex supplies might be called.
the truth is an absolute defense. do they REALLY wanna go there?
Except in a criminal trial Fluke would have to answer questions about her sex life under oath, Rush could decline to testify.
Go ahead Gloria you media WHORE.
File your charges. Then Rush’s attorneys and Private Dicks get to run a microscope thru Fluckers life from the day she was spawned.
I can only imagine what dragging a Hundred dollar bill thru her life if gonna drag up.
I am ordering extra popcorn...
One of the interesting things about Miss Fluke is that she co-wrote and article demanding that Georgetown University’s health insurance cover SEX CHANGE Operations. So we know that, in the very least, she has an agenda. Unfortunately the term “slut” has little or no meaning in this currently declining culture.
Gloria Allred is a genital wart that flares up from time to time, usually when a camera or microphone is nearby. The woman is a scumbag publicity hound. Her whole career is one publicity stunt after another.
Go for it, Gloria Babe.
Getting to carry out discovery against Sandra Fluke might be the most fun El Rushbo ever gets to have with his pants on.
Truth is a defense for libel. Therefore if he can prove that she IS a slut, the case is closed. And discovery allows him to dig as long and as hard as he’d like into that topic.
And I don’t think she wants to go to the hearing on whether she is a “public figure” for purposes of libel law. That will turn into an hours-long recital of her political activism that will blow the cover off this image of the poor abused little private citizen.
But you go right ahead, Gloria Dear. You know best.
SLUTS UNITE-—HEAR US ROAR!!!
By knowingly participating in a publicity stunt, she made herself a "public figure" and was no longer just a private citizen attempting to do her "civic duty."
Why would a woman in "want of chastity" need birth control, let alone publicly testify that she also wants her university's healthcare plan to pay for it??
By the woman's own words, she is not chaste. so I don't see how this can fly. I guess it depends on what judge they get.
Good luck with that. /s
Nothing to see here. Move along.
This is illustrative of the left, though,
to try to use the government (ie, FORCE),
to punish political/ideological opposition.
out of the woodwork they crawl. Well I’ll tell ya old gloreeeeeahh...if you are looking for a way to prosecute Rush Limbaugh ... you better be looking for ways to prosecute the rest of those who attacked Palin, Bachman and the rest.
Guess Glorrrrreeeahhhh is brought out and dusted off every now and then to create trouble. Well, she’s gonna bite off more than she can chew on this one.
At least we know when she dies and goes to Hell, she’s already dressed to impress.
SLUTS UNITE-HEAR US ROAR!!!
No doubt about it....She’s a Dem prostitute. You think she’s paying ANY of her bills?? With what??
Gloria Allred has no standing in this case. It would be up to the “victim” to contact the prosecutor and file the necessary police report, then the prosecutor may, at his discretion determine if a crime has been committed.
No publicly elected prosecutor is going to file charges against Limbaugh and then have to explain to an electorate why resources are being used to prosecute a misdemeanor of this type. Besides....could you imagine the number of women who would gather in the prosecutor’s office on a Monday morning after their boyfriend’s ‘dissed them on a Saturday night?
This is nothing more than another “look at me” moment for Allred.
I would submit that unless Fluke is her client, she should shut her yap. It may very well be that Sandra DOES have counsel and Gloria may have to answer to the bar about her interference with Sandra’s true counsel.
This is much ado about nothing.
Speaking of sluts...
Well, it’s illegal to call another man ‘boy’ in one small Georgia town.
Should we prosecute every stupid and outdated law?
What ever happened to the sluts Gloria trotted out against Herman Cain?
If Allred is serious about resorting to these laws, we should encourage her. After the discovery period, I'm positive "Fluke the Unchaste" would be headed for a whirl on "Ye Ol' Dunkstool."
Gloria Allred is indeed “All Red” in her politics, but never because of the color of her face, which should blush with shame. Her ancestors must be turning over in their graves at her siding with trash wherever she can push herself in. The woman promotes stupid thinking for her own financial gain and notoriety. Surely no lawyer is really that immoral? /sarc
True, but then Allred could conclusively establish her client’s lack of chastity....oh, wait...does she really want to do that?
Allred, the publicity whore who pretends to be a lawyer, must need some additional attention.
Gloria, honey, take your meds and try to understand - Sandra "put herself out there" and, as such, made herself into a "public figure". Rush, exercised his First Amendment rights and rightfully poked fun at a "public figure".
There is just no there, there. Had you actually studied the law, you would know this.
I would love to see a video surface of Sandra Fluke attending a “Slut Walk Protest” that was held either earlier this year or last year.
