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 Allred explained that the statute recently came to her attention as having never been repealed, and that it could very well apply to Limbaugh’s remarks as his show is broadcast from West Palm Beach.

    Ms. Allred’s name is just perfect. She is getting “all red” under the collar or may be she wants
    to fight a case to make some big bucks.

  • Bob from Florida says:

    It would seem to me that what we have here is a young unmarried woman who not only intends to engage in unchaste conduct, i.e., sexual relations with a man who is not her husband, but wants someone else to provide her with the means to avoid the natural consequences of the aforesaid unchaste conduct. The term “a posteriori” comes to mind most readily.

    I’ve always been amazed how the ACLU, and people like miss Allred can bring suits for people. Miss Fluke was the one attacked. At age 30 and a law student, isn’t she the one who should pursue a law suit? What’s Florida got to do with either of them?

  • Rattlerjake says:

    Also interesting how Allred, as an attorney, has and does “LIE”, make false claims, and defame individuals if necessary to get her clients off. What in the hell is she expecting Rush to be prosecuted for? If Rush is prosecuted, then Bill Maher should also be prosecuted for calling Palin a whore.

  • Lee says:

    It’s interesting that Miss Allred is all for Miss Fluke’s freedom of speech but dead set against Mr. Limbaugh’s same right.
