Gloria Allred seeks Rush Limbaugh prosecution
The Politico ^ | 3/9/12 | MJ LEE

Posted on 03/09/2012 11:26:12 PM PST by Impala64ssa

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 Allred explained that the statute recently came to her attention as having never been repealed, and that it could very well apply to Limbaugh’s remarks as his show is broadcast from West Palm Beach.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 out 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.”

I figured it wouldn’t be long before Allred came sniffing around for a payday.

(Go ahead and sue me, Gloria - thanks to Obama, there ain’t all that much left to take!)

Lawyers lie at the nucleus of virtually every social ill. That said, Allred is scum. Should have been disbarred years ago.

“Young law student”

She’s 30.

“Testifying before Congress”

No - testifying before a privately assembled group of Congressional Democrats.

“Exercising her free speech.”

Fluke has been a Hard Left political activist for ten years.

Allred probably overheard someone say to a peer, down the hall from her office, talking about Rush, saying “SLUT” and “PROSTITUTE”, and she no doubt almost broke her neck running to her office door and screaming “Quit talking about me behind my back”.

I want the prize. Try this on for size

“Gloria Allred- Queen of Legal Tarts”

Legal beagles know what I’m talking about - i.e. TORTS

Allred gives vultures a good name.

Vultures deny knowing her.

Sharks head the other way when she comes in the water.

Only the poisonous blue-ringged octopus greets her as an equal.

There was a time many years ago in the Gloria Allred infancy where I thought.. for a fleeting moment... she cared about those she represented. Funny... as she and I aged I realized what a complete and utter fraud she is and continues to be! Cannot believe she has not been disbarred at this point in her career... she is so full of sh@t!

You know she is full of... when she doesn’t even care about her clients or winning her case. The only thing she cares about is her (not so pretty) face being in the spotlight and taking down Republicans; i.e. Herman Cain.

Let’s change be argument.

She’s begging to reverse the suffrage movement. Their right to equality and independence are threatened by her demand, as she seeks to make women wards of the state.

Will women no longer have independence, self determination and independence?

Did Sandra Fluke's House testimony make her a public figure? She knew that her testimony would be national news.

I don't expect this to go to court, and I doubt Fluke would win if it did, but I wonder which slander law would apply.

Allred is pretty much a red diaper baby who claims she was I think gang banged by force by a group of Mexican machismo toughs while on vacation in Mexico as a young woman...in 1966 ...at gunpoint..

and later claimed she got pregnant from the rape(s) and was unable to get an abortion and so had an illegal one and got sick and almost died..like her en utero child

now who knows...really the truth...she is not high on my veracity meter and it does seem suspect she hits the woman as victim trifecta (would a woman who claims to have been raped by a group of Mexican men at gunpoint choose to live in Los Angeles?)

she has the usual cultural background and then all this maybe or maybe not bad crap

so it’s like a double or triple or quadruple whammy of angry assed lawyer woman who has a grudge for men and traditional gender roles

and we reap her getback whirlwind

you scratch the surface of folks like here...even the few we have here...the sexist and race card bunch and you will find something “personal”

“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.”

There is no right to testify before Congress. It was not an issue until Georgie Stefie, on orders from the WH, decided to make it one.

Similar to the critical race theory of Derrick Bell et al.

It’s free speech when the downtrodden class (blacks, women, and any party member) says what they think.
It’s blasphemy when the overlords (old, white, capitalist, men) say mean things.

Is Gloria Allred just another "ambulance chaser?" She appears to be trying to jump on the bandwagon in the feeding frenzy by the disordered, hysterical left and the socialist Democrats to hurt Rush. You can see the hate dripping from their mouths.
