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.

I wish a lawyer would sue her, she slanders conservatives too frequently. Why doesn’t she go after democrats and the likes of Bill Marher, for calling Palin the C word and worse, and making fun of her Downs Syndrome Baby, where was Allred then?

Can we drop this phony theater once and for all?

This is not a fight between Limbaugh and Alred.

It’s a fight between regular people and tyrannical statists.

What a publicity hound. She really doesn't want to go there. If Rush could be prosecuted, half the mean media could be,as well as certain "entertainers".

According to the Florida statute she cites, to prove defamation, Fluke would have to prove she is NOT a slut. Therefore her sexual history would have to be paraded in the courtroom for all to behold.

This is actually good.

The more the Leftists go after Limbaugh, the more of their own dirty laundry will be aired.

They’ve got one conservative talk show host, Rush, calling a self-admitted 30-year-old “student” whore a “slut”.

Once.

That’s it.

That’s all they’ve got.

How many foul-mouthed Demon-cRATS can Rush dredge up, on video, saying far worse about people who, unlike the Fluke, did NOTHING to deserve the foul-mouthed calumny heaped upon them.

Demon-cRATS are sewer-mouths. They can’t seem to be able to talk for more than a minute without a four-letter epithet coming out of their filthy pie holes. They use the “f” word for punctuation.

Go figure: Gotcha lawyer Gloria Allred has proved herself more than willing to embroil herself in the controversy that continues to plague radio host Rush Limbaugh. The president of the Women’s Equal Rights Legal Defense and Education Fund sent a letter to the county prosecutor of West Palm Beach, Florida, to call for an investigation into whether Limbaugh violated Florida defamation law. From TPM: 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...

Feminist attorney-activist Gloria Allred is asking authorities in Florida to figure out whether Rush Limbaugh violated laws when he ridiculed Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke. In a letter to County Attorney Denise Nieman in West Palm Beach, Florida, dated March 8, Allred says Limbaugh may have violated a misdemeanor statute against defamation. "Mr. Limbaugh has publicly acknowledged that his reference to Ms. Fluke as a 'slut' and a 'prostitute' were baseless and false," Allred wrote. Allred said Nieman's office should "open an investigation into whether or not Mr. Rush Limbaugh is in violation of Section 836.04 of Florida Statutes....

Gloria supports legalization of prostitution probably has marched in the “Slut Walks” and if not she surely supports women who hold signs in favor of Slut Pride. It is the really cool thing to do if you are a feminist now.

She sees nothing wrong with women who choose to be prostitutes. So why is she upset with Rush calling a women a prostitute when she defend prostitution as a worthwhile profession?

“In 1994, Allred wrote an editorial for the December 6 issue of the Los Angeles Times, titled “Prosecution or Persecution,” in which she asserted that laws prohibiting prostitution are sexist and victimize women. She advocated legalization and regulation of the sex trade in order to reduce sexually transmitted diseases and drug abuse. According to Allred, “Unprotected, uninsured sex workers are the real victims who deserve legal status and an end to government-funded harassment.” http://www.answers.com/topic/gloria-allred

Gloria stepped in it. The comments section in Politico, of all places, was essentially 450 comments calling Allred a publicity whore. Different words, many more harsh, but the same sentiment.

Didn’t Allred recently accidentally and inappropriately release her massive list of lib press release contacts to keep her name constantly in the press? Obviously, Rush could “help her out” by advertising her released info and asking his listeners to contact all those the media people (over and over again) to insure that Gloria achieves the level of media hog visability she is seeking.

A few million calls and emails a day to those on her list would get Gloria what she deserves.

Ha. What a hypocrite.

The [Florida} 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.

Doesn't Ms Allred think this is an archaic law which reflects a male supremacist double standard on women's worth? Or will she advocate the use of the law to defend poor women of color, by the prosecution of all rappers and hiphop stations for using the term "ho?" Does she only care when privileged, educated young white women are defamed?

Fluke is chaste? Guess she doesn't need $1,000 per year for condoms.

The law is discriminatory on it’s face since it only applies to the virtue of a woman and doesn’t provide equal protection for a man. Seems to me that would make it unconstitutional. I wonder if in any of her national news coverage Ms Alred has done the same thing. Not calling some woman a sl*t but impuning her virtue, etc in other areas. Turn around is fair play.
