Celebrity lawyer and unabashed liberal Gloria Allred wants conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh prosecuted in Florida for calling Georgetown University law student and women's rights activist Sandra Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute." Politico reported Friday: 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 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 Allred explained that the statute recently came to her attention as having never been repealed, and that it could very well apply to Limbaugh's remarks as his show is broadcast from West Palm Beach...His joke was that a woman wanting others to pay for her birth control is acting like a slut and a prostitute. Regardless, this is just another attention-seeking measure by Allred following her representing Sharon Bialek in her accusations regarding Herman Cain. Haven't heard much about that since Cain dropped out of the Republican presidential race.
