This story is actually difficult to believe.
During a recent broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Rush Limbaugh said this about Krystal Ball, a former Democratic Congressional candidate: “Remember the name Krystal Ball with a K? Some thought she was attractive. She was running for Congress and she got elected, some tweets came out. She posed nude when she was 14 or 15…”
This is completely, categorically untrue. Ball, who worked for a time at MSNBC and is now a host on Rising on Hill TV, never posed nude. Ball, speculated on Monday that Limbaugh was referring to some photos that were taken at a costume party near the end of her run for congress – in which she was fully dressed.
Ball recently discussed the difficulty she had figuring out how to respond to Limbaugh’s ridiculous comments. Here is the link.
Ball could certainly sue Limbaugh for his despicable statements but Limbaugh and his network would love the resulting publicity and likely aren’t terribly worried about an adverse verdict.
Years ago, former Senator Al Franken wrote a book about Limbaugh entitled Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Liar. Well worth a read and provides some great insights into Limbaugh says things to his millions of listeners that have no actual basis in fact.
