Steny Hoyer to Sandra Fluke: You should probably sue Rush, you know

posted at 10:11 pm on March 5, 2012 by Allahpundit

Given the insane mileage Democrats are getting from this story, he could probably get David Boies to represent her pro bono. Anything to keep the headlines coming.

Someone, I forget who, tweeted a few days ago that they’d happily bet ten grand that Fluke will get a cameo speaking appearance on one of the first nights of the Democratic convention. Anyone want to take that bet? Bear in mind, Obama’s already dialing up women’s colleges and inviting himself to speak at commencement in hopes of squeezing every last drop of war-on-women goodness out of this fiasco. At the rate we’re going, Fluke might introduce him at his acceptance speech.

“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.”…

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.

She’s got two problems trying to beat him on a defamation claim. One: Hoyer’s probably wrong when he says she’s not a “public figure” for First Amendment purposes. Courts will treat someone as a “limited-purpose public figure” under certain circumstances; according to the EFF’s summary of the law, typically that applies to someone who “(a) voluntarily participates in a discussion about a public controversy, and (b) has access to the media to get his or her own view across.” Fluke voluntarily testified before Congress and, lord knows, she has all the access to the media she could ever want. Assuming she’s a “limited-purpose public figure,” that means she’d have to show that Rush was more than just negligent in calling her a “slut” but acted with reckless disregard for whether it was true. Not an impossible standard to meet but more difficult, and his extended apology today may affect the calculus. The other problem is that, at bottom, he was making a crude joke more than a sincere accusation of fact. His point was that if you want someone else paying for your birth control then you’re kinda sorta being paid to have sex, in which case you’re kinda sorta a prostitute. That analogy is obviously different from claiming earnestly that someone’s promiscuous, but Rush did go on and on and on with it, especially in riffing on the absurdity of the $3,000 figure, so who knows how a jury would disentangle it. Would the line, “She’s having so much sex it’s amazing she can still walk, but she made it up there,” be viewed in the larger context of the point he was making or would it be viewed as a bona fide assertion of fact? I don’t know. Defamation lawyers, any insights?

You’ll be pleased to know that Bill Maher, the chief villain in Kirsten Powers’s j’accuse of liberal men this weekend, has a nifty new HuffPo post up talking about what it’s like to grow up a poor man and then donate $1 million to Obama’s Super PAC, Priorities USA. Among the people circulating his post on Twitter: Bill Burton, senior strategist and co-founder of … Priorities USA. You know, I’m starting to think they might not give back the money.

Is he lying for the benefit of the retard that vote for Hoyer? Is he lying for your benefit. Maybe he’s not lying at all, and he really will attempt to eliminate the first amendment. He’s not the first Democrat/Fascist piece of garbage that would want to, is he?

I’m going to post this reminder in every thread on this Democratic strategy to change the subject:

In Spring of 2014 every faith that doesn’t love abortion will be struck. Every religious elementary school, high school, university, soup kitchen, homeless shelter, pregnancy counseling center, and hospital will be shuttered by this regime. If any stay open without distributing abortifacients, their leaders will eventually be jailed. There’s ecumenism for you: Protestant pastors, Catholic bishops, and Orthodox rabbis will be in jail together.

Well, the OCG just opened our Cox cable bill for the month and it is up 7% over last month and 16% over the last few months. A good deal of it is paying for other peoples telephone and cable. SOOOOO… I had a decision to make. How to lower my bill. I called Cox and asked what would be the best way to lower my bill. They suggested either go to a slower internet or cancel HBO and Showtime. HMMMM! Let me see. DO I want to have slower access to Hot Air? or Do I want to cancel the HBO porno and bill maher? After a hard decision making process of about 3 nanoseconds, I cancelled HBO and bill maher. I feel I get two extra points for this because none of my money goes to Hollywood and none to unpunished “sarah is a slut” bill maher. I think a lot of customers must be doing this – or I got that impression.

And, I can still get L. Rushbough over several radio stations.

Rush willing fell into a trap set by the marxists.

He seems to me to be losing a step. What will it be like when he retires? Who could fill his shoes?

Steny Hoyer to Sandra Fluke: You should probably sue Rush, you know

First, truth is a complete defense to defamation claims.

Second, nobody made her testify and become the poster child for Guv’met mandated free birth control products. That transformed her overnight into a public figure, requiring otherwise slanderous statements to also be malicious. Absent malice, public ridicule is fair game.

It’s beyond time that this country gets over being offended at the smallest slight.

Ah, Comrade Hoyer the great friend of the teachers union who along with the help of the teachers union and the Maryland Dems actually screwed the teachers on their med benefits etc. Ole Stenny sold his soul along with Pelosi a long time ago and now represents old nick constituents. Hoyer face looks flush with alcholism.

SANTA on March 6, 2012 at 10:45 AM

The truth is a defense to a charge of slander. Thus the statement, “She is a slut” is not slander if “she” is in fact a slut. I would analyze this case by asking whether or not someone who needs $3,000 in contraceptives so badly she is essentially willing to beg for them is, indeed, a slut? Or perhaps she is a nyphomaniac? Maybe she isn’t, but the question will have to be asked. By RushBo’s lawyers. Even now, they are probably asking themselves, don’t we have to ask? The truth is a defense, and they have an ethical obligation to raise all legitimate defenses. Thus, the lawyers must inquire into whether she is a slut or not, now that it has been said.

Fluke voluntarily testified before Congress

Allah, this is a very basic misconception that is helping to fuel this fire. Ms. Fluke (rhymes with F*ck) did NOT testify before Congress. She “testified” at what really amounted to a press conference called by Democrats to push the “War on Women” meme they have been cultivating since Dianne Sawyer asked Romney the contraception question at a January debate. Stephanapolus followed it up again at a subsequent debate and bandied it about on talk shows for a week or so thereafter.

Ms. Fluke is a democrat plant and Rush and many Republicans fell for it. She is an operative plain and simple. This is the type of highly organized and well planned stagecraft that is being hatched by the White House, Democrat party, and the media.

Excellent comment. It occurs to me that Ms. Fluke was not really offended. How can someone who testifies before the federal government that she needs them to pay for her sexual activities be embarrassed about anything? If she is comfortable testifying before her fellow Americans that she wants them to subsidize her sex life, how could she honestly be surprised or offended at RushBo’s comment?

It is feigned outrage. The truth is she and her (hidden) liberal mentors are using this as an opportunity to attack Rush.

verbaluce on March 6, 2012 at 11:02 AM

Let me repost here:

Let’s go all the way back to that old Chicago-radio audio capture of Barack Obama, who claimed that the Constitution is too limited in that it listed what the government cannot do rather than what it should do. The Left is making claims for “rights” such as government-guaranteed health care or health insurance that in this specific case mandates contraceptive services. The Left presumes that rights are derived from the State, the government, not that the government is limited by the people’s inherent rights.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg made that distinction clear when she said that our Constitution is not the preferred model because it did not defined rights more broadly.

The issues with this whole brouhaha in which Fluke is the means to an end, a tool for unraveling the intent of our Constitution, are the trumping of limited government as opposed to expansionist government intruding on personal freedoms and the destruction of First Amendment rights of freedom of speech (silencing critics of government overreach) and freedom of religion (silencing opponents of conscience-quelling).

Dimwits like Fluke are ceding to the federal government the power to make reproductive decisions by forcing taxpayers or insurance carriers through government mandate the payers of population control. We know that the “green” activists see population as a threat to eco-sustainability and that the “health law” writers see population manipulation as a means of containing costs. How much power do these fools want to give to an impersonal bureaucracy?

I don’t know Sandra Fluke, so I don’t know whether she’s a slut, or a prostitute or not. If she is a prostitute, it’s plain that she wouldn’t be able to charge very much; she might even have to pay the guy for doing her. But I did see and hear her testimony, and saw clearly that she’s a democrat, and worse yet, probably an Obummer voter, as well. And being those things is far worse than being a slut and/or a prostitute, even a cheap prostitute, no?

uncle_fweddy on March 6, 2012 at 11:31 AM

I also don’t understand Rush’s willingness to apologize so quickly. Stand up, Rush. You’re absolutely correct: someone who wants to be paid to have sex IS, by definition, a prostitute. Right? Or, I suppose, a democrat, which is far worse than being a prostitute. Prostitutes, after all, aren’t attempting to wreck the country the way the democrats are. At most, they’re participating in the supply and demand paradigm of capitalism. And, as Milton Friedman has observed, no economic system yet devised has raised more people out of the abject poverty that is the hallmark of the socialist economies favored by democrats, and dictators, the world over.

uncle_fweddy on March 6, 2012 at 11:46 AM

Rush realizes that a boycott on his advertisers doesn’t hurt him, (he’s rich,) but it hurts minions like me who sell advertising for a living on one of his affiliate stations. That’s most likely the only reason he apologized. It really hasn’t done much damage to us, though. For the 9 or so advertisers who dropped him, we’ll get 10 more with the spiking ratings he’s given us. Plus his demo has a solid average HH income of $100k+. You’d be foolish to capitulate to a bunch of broke-a$$ leftists when you can hit people who actually have the dough to use his advertisers’ product.

That was where Santorum most recently took the bait, yes, but it was offered before that, by Dianne Sawyer, as

NOMOBO on March 6, 2012 at 10:51 AM

has observed. If I understand it correctly, it was Sawyer’s program where Katy Couric did her hit piece on Sarah Palin, and Sawyer has been involved in keeping last year’s shooting of Gabrielle Giffords alive (another so-called victim of Sarah Palin’s extremism). Palin was targeted because she is charismatic and appealing female religious conservative. The attacks on Palin, Santorum, and Limbaugh are all part of the same thing, and attempts to whip up mob fury are part of it.

Pelosi and Axelrod are trying bring Romney into this for refusing to join in the dogpile on Limbaugh. He didn’t take the bait in either case, which suggest to me that he’s a wiser man.

For those who care – about America, truth and the depths that the Dems will stoop to to steal an election, please read this article. It points out the lies and read it carefully – there are many lies that haven’t even begun to be noted on or reported on Ms Fluke and her DNC agenda driven rampage against Georgetown Law and more importantly the Constitution.
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203370604577263281305035966.html

From the article:

Yes, birth-control pills can be prescribed to address medical problems, though that’s relatively rare and the Catholic Church has no quarrel with their use in this circumstance. And the university’s insurance covers prescriptions in these cases.

Read this, reread this and remember this in Nov.

And the author knows of what is written – SHE received her JD from Georgetown Law in 1989.

jackal40 on March 6, 2012 at 12:42 PM

Contraception paid for by others is not the question, the question is can our gov’t force the Catholic Church to forgoe their teachings against contraception and be mandated to buy something they teach against? Does the mythical liberal “wall of seperation of church and state” does not exist when liberal mandates apply?

Screw Sandra Fluke…everyone else has based on her three times a day habit, she claimed. She is a political hack attempting to overhaul a Catholic schools doctrine in effect for hundreds of years using the force of government mandate.

If she believes in this idea for others paying for sex, why doesn’t she quit school, donate her 45k so 45 other women can have sex for a year?

I’m not a fan of throwing all my personal into the cloud-ether. External USB drives are relatively inexpensive. The only thing I would add is having two backups. e.g. second external (or internal) drive, DVDs. Always plan for a disastrous data loss on one medium. I know what I’m talkin’ bout there, sadly enough.

Well, I went through a couple of failed hard drives in the past year, one on a Win laptop and one on Mac. Win restore was a bit dicey as I had to use tolls and software to ghost my old drive onto new one, although it went smoothly. In Mac case, it has Time Machine already built in into OS and will use any external drive to do the job. But like you, I now keep 2 external drives, one that use once in a while to do a complete hard drive image copy of all files and software I need and another that is attached to my laptop constantly.

If a hard drive is readable – and not a completely dead doorstop – it’s handy to have an OS that you can run from the CD-DVD drive to use to copy/transfer your files to another storage device so you work on restoring a drive – if possible – without worrying about losing your data. For that I use “Puppy Linux”. Knoppix is good, too.
What I’m going to pickup soon is an USB external hard drive docking station. You just take a disk, pop it into the slot (like bread in a toaster) and your PC/Mac should be able to read & manage the files on the external disk. I’ve got a lot of old PCs with drives in them that probably have a lot of info/files I’ve assumed were just lost or had just totally forgotten about. Should be fun.

With any of them do a check on customer reviews. Also, sometimes they will just die without warning anyway, like any other drive. Happened to me with an external Maxtor One-Touch 1 terabyte drive a few months back. That’s partly why I suggest buying 2 external drives, lol – a 2nd backup in case the 1st backup gives up the ghost.

whatcat on March 6, 2012 at 3:17 PM

$9 is the price for a month’s supply of birth control pills at Target only 3 miles from Georgetown Law School. I guess we all now know that this made for TV hearing had nothing to do with contraception availability for women.
