" This may be a big part of the reason that Rush quit ESPN.

This could do his radio program in as well if radio stations decide to drop it.

Don't kid yourself, this is a serious hit."

The involvement of the State's Attorneys Office and the potential tape and e mail trail,plus a cooperating witness could be devastating .This isn't just an embarrassing gossip story- Rush appears to be in enormous legal trouble.He could survive the ESPN mess,but,I don't see how he gets past this.

It is very possible that this is a frame-up. I want to hear what Rush has to say about it before I'd believe it.

This story is laughable, If the cleaning lady gave Rush the pills from her husbands prescription, how did she get the thousands of other pills. She claims in this story that she contacted the investigators after Rush said to destroy her PC. This story has holes big enough to fly Air Force One through

I believe how much trouble he might be in depends largely on whether he used intimidation to get the maid to supply him with the pills.

If he did he could be in a world of hurt.

Agreed. This is not "made up." This newspaper would be put out of business by Rush's lawsuit if they concocted this out of thin air.

I suppose it is possible that Rush did not trust doctors to keep giving him the meds he craved; after all, lately doctors are not likely to be later blamed for feeding the habits of celebrities and leading to their deaths. So many stories have come out. So perhaps getting OTHER people's prescriptions would have been his only way.

It sounds like Marta did NOT know about this.

If they really do have tapes, it's not like people wouldn't recognize that voice.

I would have respect for Rush if he had come on the air and told us he had accidentally gotten in over his head with pain medication. I think we all would have prayed for him and been there for him as he attempted to get help.

However, this sneakiness and illegality is horrendous. We expect so much MORE from Rush. Also, he REPRESENTS us, in some ways. He now makes us all look like phonies. If only he had not gone the illegal route.

Innocent until proven guilty, I need to remind myself, but this looks bad.

My heart is actually sore about this.

Gerry Spence might get him off. Juries do what they want to do.
