PALM BEACH, Fla., March 9 (UPI) -- Rush Limbaugh or one of his employees appears to have made an effort to remove his remarks about a Washington law student from his Web site, Politico reports.

A search for the word "slut" comes up empty, Politico said. A search for "prostitute" brings up a link to a transcript but the link is now broken.

Limbaugh started a firestorm last week when he said on his radio show that Sandra Fluke got paid for sex or at least wanted to be. Fluke, a law student at Georgetown University, testified at a Democratic hearing on medical reasons for making contraception available.

The scrubbing was not complete when Politico looked at the site because it was able to find a link to a follow-up broadcast when Limbaugh commented on the criticism, which included a replay of the original remarks. He apologized Saturday.

The controversy has cost the Limbaugh show a number of advertisers and a few stations.
