Skip to comments.Gloria Allred seeks Rush Limbaugh prosecution
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 Womens 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 Allred explained that the statute recently came to her attention as having never been repealed, and that it could very well apply to Limbaughs remarks as his show is broadcast from West Palm Beach.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 dont reach out to women, they reach out to me, she said. If she did reach out to me, obviously I would respond.
Limbaughs contentious remarks, made against Fluke for testifying on Capitol Hill about womens 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.
YOUTUBE - Gloria is a media whore

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!
KILL FREE SPEECH
/ Gloria Allred
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.
The sluttiness of sluts has been determined to be legally irrelevant when it comes to determining their slut status.
Whatever happened to that pathetic woman she dug up who made ridiculous claims against Cain?
Whatever happened to free speech?
Whatever happened to free speech?
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?
Sandra “Please get the beam out of your eye”.
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.
OCTOPUSSY? Just watched the James Bond movie. Although she was a hero.
Allred appears to be an Obama proxy. Let her bring this to national attention.
The public back-lash will be enormous. Bring it on!
Oh, geez, It’s from the leftist pipeline Politico.
No surprise here.
Gloria Allred has something in common with that slut, whatsername - - they're both attention whores.
Can I say "whores"?
When there’s a slut involved, it’s only a matter of time before Gloria acts as her pimp.
is gloria a member of the florida bar association...she seems to be acting like a lawyer
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”
Just a publicity stunt so the royal skank Allred can get her name in the news.
