Rush is being investigated for illegally funneling money to buy prescription painkillers:
- In his third day back on the air after rehab, Limbaugh responded with a denial of the allegations first reported Tuesday by ABC News.
“I was not laundering money. I was withdrawing money for crying out loud,” Limbaugh said in his three-hour broadcast.
Limbaugh was absent from his show for five weeks after announcing he was entering a drug rehabilitation program because of his addiction to prescription painkillers.
….Law enforcement sources in Palm Beach County, where Limbaugh owns a $24 million oceanfront mansion, previously confirmed that a criminal investigation into a prescription drug ring involved the conservative radio commentator. His maid reported supplying him with the painkillers. [AP]
With these kinds of allegations, I wonder how long before the IRS gets involved. Remember, it was the IRS that put Al Capone away – not that I’m comparing Rush and Al.
Also, this send-the-maid-for-the-drugs bit really sticks in my craw – go snag your own poison, you imperious skidmark, or are you too important to put yourself in harm’s way? Did the gardener procure the hookers?
