Continuing a tradition started in the movie "Rush," Rush Limbaugh was charged with perscription drug fraud today ending a nearly 2-year probe of the conservative radio commentator and his rather expensive habit of OxyCotin abuse. He plead guilty to only one of the counts against him, that of fraudulently obtaining perscription drugs through his housekeeper. The charges will be dropped if he continues drug therapy for the next 18 months. Certainly a case of a rich white guy receiving preferential treatment. Hopefully he'll remiss like some of his Florida neighbors, Dwight Gooden and Darryl Strawberry, or prosecuters will pursue some other charges. Lord knows with as much as Rush was using, it should take more than a little therapy to keep him clean.
