I Don’t Like The Drugs But The Drugs Like Me: Final Edition
BLITZER: There were documents, though, released, letters that were exchanged, made public — whether or not that was right or wrong is a separate issue — that suggested you initiated some sort of a plea bargain deal, some sort of arrangement that you wanted to get Rush Limbaugh off the hook. Give us your perspective on precisely what you did?
BLACK: Yes, sir, I’m glad that you asked that question, because, No. 1, this was not plea bargaining. We never at any time said Rush Limbaugh would plead guilty to an offense, because he has not committed a crime in the state of Florida. What we told them is that Rush has admitted he had a dependency on prescription pain medication because of the years of pain he suffered from his back problems and others. He went into rehabilitation.
