Lawyer: Prosecute Rush Limbaugh for defamation
A high-profile attorney is calling for Rush Limbaugh to be prosecuted for calling a college student a “slut” and a “prostitute” on his radio show.
Gloria Allred sent a letter to the Palm Beach County Attorney’s Office saying an obscure defamation statute should be used against Limbaugh. That law says it’s a misdemeanor to falsely and maliciously question a woman’s chastity.
In an interview Friday, Allred said Limbaugh “should have to bear the consequences of his extremely outrageous” conduct.
Limbaugh lives on Palm Beach and broadcasts his nationally syndicated show from there.
