Rep. George Miller Urges More Advertisers to Drop Rush


    Google+    

By: U.S. Congressman George Miller (D-CA)

WASHINGTON, March 5, 2012 - Rep. George Miller (D-CA) issued the following statement in reaction to Rush Limbaugh's alleged apology to Georgetown Law Student Sandra Fluke concerning her position on insurance coverage for contraception.

"Rush Limbaugh cannot escape his hateful, hurtful and deliberately misleading attack on Georgetown Law Student Sandra Fluke on the issue of insurance coverage for contraception. I believe that Rush Limbaugh chose his words carefully when he called her a slut and a prostitute for using contraception. And in doing so, he called every woman who uses contraception a slut and a prostitute and as a result has lost what little credibility he might possibly have retained after his many years of intentionally inflammatory and hateful commentary.

"I applaud the growing group of sponsors who have announced they are pulling their support from the Rush Limbaugh show and I urge remaining advertisers to follow suit. It is incomprehensible to me how any company could remain associated with his hateful and hurtful attack on women.

"Time will not redeem Rush Limbaugh and there is no acceptable apology given his history of hateful and hurtful speech. He chose his malicious words carefully and now he must take full responsibility and face the consequences for them."
