Gloria Allred Seeking Ways to Prosecute Limbaugh
http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entries/glorida-allred-seeking-ways-to-prosecute-limbaugh

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 Women’s 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."

Ok.

This is not going to go anywhere, except as a publicity stunt.

“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?

falsely and maliciously imputing to her a want of chastity,

Fluke is a harlot. That was the core of her testimony.

Once Allred arrives, it's officially a three-ring circus.

Ahhhhhhh Ms Allred,

....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.

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 only difference between allred and fluke is their names.

They are both mesmerized by attention.

So, Glorida...let the games begin. Rush's lawyer will require a complete investigation into Ms. Fluke's past and her backers/pushers, as well as dragging Maher and other's into court as precedents that nothing has been done to them for demeaning public figures.

Allred should have "Hey everybody, look at me, look at me" tattooed on her forehead.

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.

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.

One thing the publicity whore will try to insist is that the slut was not a "public figure," but as her civic duty, only wanted to "testify before congress." What needs to be shouted from the rafters is the fact that this woman KNEW she was NOT testifying before congress, but was participating in what was for all intents and purposes a publicity stunt put on by the dems. If she didn't know, then she needs to look into suing the dems for fraud.

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.

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.

LOL.

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

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.
