Rush cops a plea
The doctor shopping for Oxy came home to roost for the “Hillbilly heroin” consumer and radio show host and hypocrite. Sweet. (Raw Story):
Rush Limbaugh has entered into a settlement agreement with the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office to end their probe of allegations that the conservative talk show host went “doctor shopping” to obtain prescription pain-killing medicine, RAW STORY has found.
The Palm Beach Post reported that Limbaugh turned himself over to Florida authorities late Friday afternoon after a warrant had been issued.
“The conservative radio commentator came into the jail at about 4 p.m. with his attorney Roy Black and bonded out an hour later on a $3,000 bail,” said a spokesman for the State Attorney’s office, according to the Palm Beach Post.
According to attorney Roy Black, a single charge of doctor shopping will be filed in court by the state attorney, and as long as Limbaugh “completes an additional 18 months of treatment” by his physician, and pays $30,000 “to the State of Florida to defray the public cost of the investigation,” the charge will then be dropped.
Look at the list of drugs America’s Conservative was popping like candy:
Limbaugh was accused of “doctor shopping” in order to obtain an “inordinate abundance of painkillers,” which included “OxyContin, Lorcet, Norco, Hydrocodone and Kadian, the anti-anxiety drug Xanax, the cholesterol-lowering drug Niacin, and Clonodine.
Considering the amount of painkillers this man was consuming, I have to ask this somewhat tasteless question — how on earth did he not self-destruct from the constipation alone?
