Pass the popcorn.
Last night on Hannity, Rush Limbaugh’s attorney, Patty Glaser, appeared on the show to make it clear that yes, she is threatening to sue the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC). It sounds like she has a pretty good case.
At issue is a statement made by Rush on his radio show back on September 15. That’s when he was talking about the new standards of sexual consent in a collegiate community. Rush commented on the “no means no” philosophy by asking the following question: “How many of you guys, in your own experience with women, know that ‘no’ means ‘yes’ if you know how to spot it?”
Rush went on to say that “we have got to reprogram the way we raise men.”
After that episode, the DCCC sent out one of its many desperate (and, as it turns out, ineffective) fundraising letters quoting Rush as saying that “no means yes if you know how to spot it.”
Glaser says that the quote is out of context and she is demanding a retraction and an apology from the DCCC. She seems to have the facts on her side because, according to her, the DCCC isn’t responding specifically to the claims of defamation. She also says that the Democratic fundraising group also claimed not to have received a letter she sent to the organization even though she has evidence that it was received.
So it looks like the Democrats are flailing here. That’s not a good sign for them.
