One Voice raps Limbaugh for anti-Italian remarks

ITALIAN AMERICAN ONE VOICE COALTION RAPS LIMBAUGH FOR ANTI-ITALIAN REMARKS

NEW JERSEY/NEW YORK---The Italian American ONE VOICE Coalition, a nationwide coalition of anti-bias activists, is calling on nationally-syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh to apologize for using the slur “Italian greaseball” during a recent broadcast.

Limbaugh used the term in reference to former NJ Governor Jon Corzine, during a broadcast last month, and the transcript, which recently came to light, is posted at:

‘Corzine has curly hair. Corzine's the kind of guy that never has to wash it; you can't tell the difference when he does.  He never has to brush it or comb it, you can't tell the difference when he does. That's why this stands out.  I mean, he’s got Italian grease ball, whatever, sixteen.  He's lathered it on there; he's slicked it back.’  (emphasis added).

Andre’ DiMino, president of ONE VOICE, criticized Limbaugh and wrote a letter demanding an apology.
