CNN/AP: Limbaugh's doctors sought in probe
Limbaugh's doctors sought in probe
Tuesday, September 27, 2005


WEST PALM BEACH, Florida (AP) -- Prosecutors want to question Rush Limbaugh's physicians in their probe of the conservative commentator's possible "doctor shopping" for prescription painkillers, according to a motion filed Tuesday.

Prosecutors believe Limbaugh illegally deceived multiple doctors to receive overlapping prescriptions for painkillers. He has not been charged with a crime.

Limbaugh's attorneys argue the request for depositions from the doctors and their employees could reveal privileged medical information.

Limbaugh has acknowledged an addiction to pain medication, attributing it to severe back pain, and took a five-week leave from his radio show to enter a treatment program in October 2003.

The criminal investigation into Limbaugh's drug use has been ongoing for nearly two years. Throughout, his attorneys have fought vigorously over privacy concerns....

1. Wow. Druggie Limbaugh gets privacy.
Women who want abortions aren't supposed to get privacy.

Even a prez can't get a private BJ.

What a world!

9. All those bastids claim a privacy right
Every time they get caught in illegal activities, all the while digging up dirt on someone else (or their wife).
They're all the same.

11. They should check his useage of felafel as well
And see whether he has stashed some up his loofah.

Oh, excuse me, I have confused my corporate media demagogues. The loofah-felafel freak is a "person" who alleges himself to be Bill O'Reilly.

25. Not to mention kiszka.
I can't believe I'm smiling. I really needed your post. I'm so pissed off this morning. Stupid world!

I suddenly remembered that polka tune- Who Stole My Kiszka

Then I started thinking of Limbaugh as just another Kafka character.

Kiszka Kafka!



Justice is a joke in America. How sad.

17. That's what chaps my hide most about this.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. Hypocrisy is the mating call of the far right. Bastards.

21. the doctors don't have to talk about anything except Oxycotin prescription
so they will not be violating or revealing any medical conditions other than his criminal drug abuse.

24. Doesn't the PATRIOT act override any medical privacy?
Believe me, I hate the hypocritical vulgar Pigboy but I hope he wins - it would set a good precedent in the WOD.
