Rush Limbaugh’s Hefty Tips Helped Fund Abortions

September 23, 2014 2:37 p.m.

Author Merritt Tierce served Rush Limbaugh twice during her days as a waitress at a Dallas steakhouse.

Each time, Limbaugh dined with sportscaster Al Michaels. And each time, the right-wing shock jock left Tierce $2,000 tips.

What did Tierce do with that money? She donated a considerable sum of it to a group that provides funding to women who otherwise couldn’t afford an abortion, that’s what.

“It felt like laundering the money in a good way,” Tierce told the Dallas Morning News. “He’s such an obvious target for any feminist or sane person. It was really bizarre to me that he gave me $2,000, and he’s evil incarnate in some ways.”
