In Palm Beach, The Fishing’s Great This Time of Year

Rush finds out that being high doesn’t mean you’re above the law:

WEST PALM BEACH — Rush Limbaugh told listeners on his radio show Thursday that prosecutors in Palm Beach County investigating possible illegal drug transactions have seized medical records of four doctors who treated him for serious medical conditions.

Limbaugh, reading from a statement prepared by his attorney Roy Black, denied any wrongdoing and accused prosecutors of going on a “fishing expedition.”

Previously, law enforcement sources in Palm Beach County, where Limbaugh owns a $24 million oceanfront mansion, confirmed that a criminal investigation into a prescription drug ring involved Limbaugh. His former maid, Wilma Cline, reported supplying him with OxyContin and other painkillers.

Limbaugh said his doctors’ records will clear him.

It’s called “probable cause,” Rush. If you watched Law & Order you’d know that.
