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.

What a disgrace to true ladies in this world.
Rush will love this.
Gloria, shove it up your Fluke.
She’s trying to be the Al Sharpton of women’s issues I guess.
Some people give lawyers a bad name, and All-Red is a case in point.
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.
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.
Oh good grief! Proving once again and as usual...that leftists can dish it out, but they sure as hell can’t take it.
And “embrace” the irony.....
Allred is the poster hag for SLUTS.
Bill Mayer first, you slut
The bitch should be disbarred for this alone
Waiting for Allred to file charges against Louis C.K and Bill Maher..oh wait..I forgot..its OK to trash Conservatives
GLORIA ALLRED SEEKS AS MUCH PUBLICITY AS POSSIBLE RIDING RUSH'S COATTAILS.
I was wondering how long Whoria Allred would jump into this.
Indeed, I wonder who is going to win?
I wonder if there are enough regular (Constitutionally literate) people left.
The left is trying to keep this fight alive.
Gloria should shut the Fluke up.
Like Savage says, liberalism is a mental disorder.
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”.
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.
“She added, Hitting him economically is one price that he has to pay. He needs to be accountable in every way possible.
Aldred, you slutty prostitute, pray tell me: What is the crime?

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 Womenâs 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 âwhoever 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...

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."

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....
Another lawyer not familiar with the 1st amendment or her own party.
I wish someone would counter by suing Bill Maher.
To heck with them. I don’t care about stooping to their level.
Gosh, I thought her calendar was all booked with prosecuting the Herman Cain floozies......
Prosecuted for calling names? Had he thrown sticks and stones, maybe. But names?
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 is a SLUT.
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.
I saw this and about hit the moon.
I need to go chill out for a while.
I think those people are called "lawyers."
She wishes. You cannot prosecute somone for their opinions.
She is spinning her wheels
A song from a brilliant album
Fluke you, Gloria.
Any idea what law would have been broken?
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.
The discovery process is going to be quite something.
Someone HAD to say it. lol you beat me to it!
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 Limbaughs 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.
How can she do this sort of thing without laughing at herself?
Allred’s a walking yeast infection.
Whether she actually was paid for the act, could be "tricky."
Fluke...Bialek...you just can’t make these women’s names up. Or CAN you...?
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.
