Gloria Allred: Limbaugh should be prosecuted

News

America's most infamous ambulance limousine-chasing attorney is back with another ax to grind and headline to grab.  Gloria Allred has reportedly sent a letter to the county prosecutor in West Palm Beach, Fla., on behalf of the Women's Equal Rights Legal Defense and Education Fund, asking for an investigation into whether Rush Limbaugh's "slut" comments about Sandra Fluke violated the state's defamation laws.

TPM reports:

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."

"Mr. Limbaugh has publicly acknowledged that his reference to Ms. Fluke as a 'slut' and 'prostitute' were baseless and false," Allred writes. "In view of the fact that Mr. Limbaugh resides in your county and allegedly made the false statements concerning Ms. Fluke in your county as well, this letter is directed to your office."
