Rush Limbaugh's comments on Sandra Fluke violated defamation laws in Palm Beach County, attorney Gloria Allred says, and she's asking the county attorney's office to open an investigation.

Allred said that Limbaugh violated a defamation law in the county by calling a Georgetown law school student a "slut" and "prostitute." Limbaugh has apologized for the statements.

Allred is encouraging the county attorney's office to prosecute Limbaugh with the misdemeanor charge, saying Limbaugh has already admitted that he falsely spoke about the woman.
