Limbaugh's medical records topic of hearing
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4685584 /

Rush Limbaughs attorney argued Wednesday that investigators trampled the conservative commentators privacy rights when they made a surprise visit to a doctors office to seize his medical records.

Limbaugh attorney Roy Black is seeking to keep the records sealed from prosecutors who accuse the radio host of illegally buying prescription drugs. He said investigators should have provided some notice they were going to seize records containing private information.

Instead, they used search warrants and gave Limbaugh no chance to challenge the seizure.

But Assistant State Attorney Jim Martz said giving notice would have limited the ability to investigate allegations that Limbaugh illegally doctor shopped to obtain pain pills, visiting several doctors to receive duplicate prescriptions.

4. You know
O'Billy had Sharon Osbourne on his show and basically shamed her for her parenting skills because her kids have been in rehab. I want him to have Rush's parents on and pull the same sh*t!! EXACTLY.

5. Heavens! ALL they had were SEARCH warrants?
Well, those are no damned good! They should just ask Rushbo if he did it or not, he'll tell the truth just like he always does!

Rot, Rush!

My, my my.

Although as I was thinking back, he did say that white drug offenders should go to jail as often as black drug offenders. But he never said RICH drug offenders should go to jail at the same rate as POOR drug offenders, or that Republicans should go at the same rate as Democrats.

7. Tsk. Tsk. Is it the law or is it not the law. Rush is a good law-abiding
citizen, I'm sure he would have no problem with these good law officials exercising their right to search with a warrant

...that flush is desperately trying to keep these records hidden because they will reveal that flush has never had back surgery.
