Steny Hoyer Wants Fluke to Sue Limbaugh

Nancy Pelosi called the far left 30 year-old abortion rights advocate yesterday.

Allahpundit is right. They’re not going to let this thing go.
What else do they have?
Democrat Hoyer wants Sandra Fluke to sue Rush Limbaugh for suggesting that she was a slut.
The Montgomery Advertiser reported:

Radio commentator Rush Limbaugh should be sued for calling a law school student a “slut” and “prostitute,” U.S. Rep Steny Hoyer, D-Maryland, said Sunday.

“I’d like to see her take him to court,” said Hoyer, who was in Selma for the annual Bridge Crossing Jubilee. “She is not a public figure and, for that reason, she should be able to sue for slander, libel or whatever else might be involved.”

The student, Sandra Fluke, testified before congressional Democrats that she wanted Georgetown University to pick up birth control costs as part of her college health plan.

Hoyer called Limbaugh’s comments “reprehensible,” a word used by other prominent Americans to denounce the commentators choice of words.

Limbaugh has apologized to Fluke for his comment, but Hoyer and others feel that and the loss of revenue from sponsors who no longer want to be on his program is not enough.

Joseph Lowery, former president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, said he is familiar with “vintage Rush Limbaugh.”

“(Fluke) has ample room to sue him and I hope she does because he’s gotten rich off the mess he causes,” said Lowery, who joined Hoyer and other national leaders in condemnation of Limbaugh.

Meanwhile, democrats continue to trample over religious freedom in America.

    I totally support free birth control for liberals. The fewer of them, the better. Can we retroactively abort a few million? The world would be a better place.

  • democraps suck

    why is it every picture I see of pig-losi makes me want to puke…

  • ponderon

    Don’t these congressman have a job their being payed to do by the taxpayers?…..maybe we(taxpayers) should sue these do-nothing congress critters for not doing the job that we are paying them to do….demand our money back……

  • Joe College

    Did this woman lie to Congress about her age? Or did someone lie to Congress on her behalf?


    As has been noted elsewhere in the blogsphere, what a field day Rush’s atty would have with discovery.
    And, what happened to “Freedom of Speech”. Ah for me but not for thee, sayeth the Dems.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Suing Rush might be a bad idea.

    Once the digging starts, some embarrassing things might come to light…

  • myohmy

    Steny Hoyer does not serve in the interest of this country. He is only interested on power for himself so he can stir perhaps some millions on his bank account on the law they are passing in Congress just like his good friend Nazi Pelosi.

    With all respect that’s due to liars and demagogues, Steny Hoyer is an idiot. Sandra Fluke fits exactly the legal definition of “limited public figure,” in that she has “thrust [herself] to the forefront of particular public controversies in order to influence the resolution of the issues involved.” Her claim against Rush would be frivolous.

    Bring it on. First of all, it’s pretty hard to sue someone for slander when it’s true. Secondly, calling someone a slut isn’t slander … it’s a matter of opinion. To some people, having sex with one person out of wedlock makes you a slut. They can beat this drum all day if they want. Public opinion indicates that people are fully aware of the game Democrats are playing here, and they resent this senseless focus on garbage like this while the country is burning down around our ears. If they continue to waste time pursuing ridiculous attacks like this, it will come back to bite them in November. Hell, I think it’s probably too late for them as it is. I know dozens of people who CAN’T WAIT to get to the polls in November ….

    Carbonite (which was operating in the RED !!!) stock is falling thru the floor.

    They weren’t even breaking even before this started!!! Their CEO smoking something or WHAT? Anyone who subscribes to them better retrieve their stuff and RUN.

  • L. E. Liesner

    Only with people like Steny Hoyer and the Democrats could “Flaky Fluke” pass the smell test. She is more proof that liberalism is a mental disease. Didn’t she advocate employers pay for employees sex changes?

  • Amjean

    Response to #11: I am so glad that Carbonite is taking a hit! I cancelled my subscription.
    Now looking for a replacement. Does anyone know anything about Mozy?

    How is Pro Flowers or AOL stock doing? They also pulled their advertising I believe.

  • Atlanta Media Guy

    And don’t ever forget…

    Sarah Palin is a c___t, rhymes with hunt.

    Michelle Bachmann is a ……

    etc… etc..,. etc…. The left calls it comedy, until someone on the right does it! Then it’s no holes bar silencing of speech. Everyone will ultimately lose if Obama wins, the FCC can very quickly silence Rush, they know it. Government regulates the airwaves, but currently they do not regulate satellite transmissions of product or the internet but that’s their plan and the card hasn’t been played yet. They have to stay clean, until after the election but the foundations are being laid. That’s why the media is fawning all over Obama, they all own TV stations in local markets, which have to apply to the FCC for licenses.

    This is proof of major Double Standards – Hey Steny, I don’t think your “chosen one” is that private of a citizen when you publicize the fact your plans to attend Georgetown to fight their insurance policy decisions, fighting for government funded sex changes and other radical causes.

    Heard from a friend, in the call center industry, Pro Flowers and Carbonite are getting slammed with emails and calls from both sides. Pro Flowers claim they did not want to get into the fray, well then why succumb to Media Matters threats? They could have kept quiet, pulled spots for a few weeks, and continued on after this woman gets her 5 minutes and a new contract at MSNBC. The sponsors who ditched Rush, have that right, like we have the right not to consume their products, which is what I am choosing to do. I’ve dropped HBO and Cinemax, took over 50 minutes with Comcast (another leftist corporate baron, who has really fast internet service, which I choose to consume.)

    I suggest we take a few minutes today to let the advertisers know that freedom to advertise and freedom to consume is what makes this country great. This could be a huge marketing disaster for these companies. All this, so the Obama could change the optics and make this about women, when it was really all about the Constitution, the First Amendment and our FREEDOM!

  • myohmy

    Next time you know this woman will testify again, this time she wants sex change that taxpayers must subsidize.

  • Redwine

    On yesterday’s show, Mark Levin said that if Fluke sued, she would be putting herself under intense public scrutiny, and that wouldn’t give her case much standing in court.

    For those of you that used Carbonite, a very easy way to back up all of your files is to buy a 1 terabyte MyBook Wester Digital external hard drive that plugs into your computer via USB. It only costs a little over $100. It has built in backup software on it and is very easy to set up. It does backups in the background and you don’t even know it’s doing it. And you can use it as an additional hard drive and store whatever you want on it.

    So you get all your files backed up and it’s local.

    Discovery during the lawsuit will be very interesting – Hoyer is an idiot but in this case a useful one for conservatives.

    Fluke is an activist – has been her entire adult life – this was a set up and it will collapse.

    I say “louder and faster” – liberals see pregnancy as a disease, how they think this mustache wearing harpy helps their cause God only knows.

    You know they are sweating when they resort to attacking Rush.

    Obama is going down hard in November – and Romney will sweep tonight.

    It will be so nice to have a classy family in the WH again.

  • Sasja

    Marmo. Thanks! I tried desperately the other day to remember the “gizmo”, as I called it, that one could purchase to back up their files.

  • Robert

    Since she is a long-time activist, I don’t see how it can be said that she is not a public figure.
