Unwise prosecution

Thursday, attention whore lawyer Gloria Allred sent a letter to the state’s attorney in West Palm Beach, Florida, demanding the prosecution of Rush Limbaugh for his comments on Sandra “Thug” Fluke.

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 Allred explained that the statute recently came to her attention as having never been repealed, and that it could very well apply to Limbaugh’s remarks as his show is broadcast from West Palm Beach.

I’m not of the opinion that Allred is a particularly fine legal mind. Attention whore, yes. Clear thinker, no.

Why?

Because to win a conviction against Rush, the prosecutor would have to prove that Fluke of the $1,000-per-year birth control demand is “chaste.”

Which side exactly was demanding that government stay out of our personal lives?

The letter got Allred a few more minutes in the public eye, which was her real goal.
