Glenn Beck's slip of the tongue on Saudi about to cost him millions
Glenn Beck's prattle is getting the best of the U.S. commentator once again: The Associated Press reported Tuesday that Beck is being sued by a Saudi Arabian man who was described by the commentator as the "money man" behind the Boston Marathon bombing.
Abdulrahman Alharbi filed a federal lawsuit in Boston late last week against Beck, saying that his reputation has been "substantially and severely damaged" as a result of Beck's commentary.
Alharbi, who attends university in the Boston area, was injured in the bombings last year, and also had been previously questioned and cleared by authorities as having no connection to the attacks.
The 20-year-old is seeking a jury trial and unspecified damages in his lawsuit against Beck.
The man with many words, however, was lost for words earlier this week after reporters called him for a comment on the lawsuit.
