Drug, Race Scandals Endanger ‘Rush Limbaugh Show’

Drug, Race Scandals Endanger ‘Rush Limbaugh Show’: “With the investigation into illegal drug use coming on the heels of his abrupt resignation from ESPN, the future of the ‘Rush Limbaugh Show’ could be in jeopardy.
Limbaugh has retained prominent attorney Roy Black to defend him in an investigation being conducted by the Palm Beach County (Fla.) state attorney’s office. Sources close to the investigation said that Limbaugh turned up as a buyer of powerful painkillers. If convicted of possession of illegal drugs, Limbaugh could face a long jail sentence. Depending upon the amount, Palm Beach County state attorney’s office spokesperson Michael Edmondson said, a 3rd degree conviction is punishable up to five years; however, trafficking or a 1st degree conviction could bring about a 30 year sentence. In 1992, the radio icon admitted to smoking marijuana, said Limbaugh biographer Paul Colford Friday during an interview on NBC’s ‘Today’ show. “
