Gloria Allred, Sticks And Stones


Attorney Gloria Allred is shown. | AP PhotoGloria Allred, who pimps out her celebrity clients for her next fix of fortune and fame, must have gone too long without the latter when the Sandra Fluke story called out to her like a line of cocaine to an addict who has gone too long without a hit.  She is calling for the Palm Beach Florida county attorney to investigate whether or not Rush Limbaugh violated a repealed, antiquated law that, in a nutshell, prohibits anyone from speaking words that question the "chastity" of a female. What we don't read in any of the news reports
covering Ms. Allred's indignity on behalf of her would-be client is exactly when that law was passed. 1510? 1650? 1895? Ms. Allred herself pointed out that the law was repealed some time ago, but she thinks the county attorney has the power to decide whether or not he will enforce it (you know, the law that is no longer a law. Where is Dr. Seuss when you need him?).

Ms. Allred's business of continually creating victims then preying on them to enrich herself are the kinds of "sticks and stones" that break the bones of her clients, not the words of people like Rush Limbaugh.

Ms. Allred likely knows very well that she would not stand a chance of winning this case in court, even if she is able to somehow persuade Ms. Fluke to become a client, which makes Ms. Allred somewhat of a "prostitute" herself in the broader sense of that word. Does it matter that she is not selling her body for gain, but rather is selling her legal services and her advocacy for the causes of her "victimized" clients in order to force plaintiffs to pony up or be dragged through a nuisance lawsuit?  A whore by any other name....

Ms. Allred  is a public figure, so we probably cannot get ourselves into hot water here at TMB by referring to her as a publicity-loving slut who  whores herself out for money and attention and is a disgrace to to the Legal profession. Another thing in our favor, as it would be in Rush's, too, if he were to get dragged into court, is the fact that truth is an absolute defense against slander and libel.

In an earlier post, I suggested that co-eds who don't want to risk the oft-unpleasant consequences of casual sex may always avail themselves of the time-honored prevention method of keeping their thighs closed (yes, Ms. Allred, chastity!). Allow me to suggest in this post that Ms. Allred and her ilk might do the world a favor by keeping their mouths closed. America is burdened with far too many verbal sluts in the press and in the legal profession, both female and male.
