Rush Limbaugh Detained Over Viagra Pills from Another Universe

Let the puns begin. Rush Limbaugh was caught and detained for more than three hours in Florida’s Palm Beach airport for carrying a vial of Viagra that had someone else’s name on it, and he now faces stiff penalties.Authorities from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection examined Limbaugh’s bags as his private jet arrived at the Palm Beach International Airport from the Dominican Republic. Paul Miller, spokesperson for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, said that authorities found the prescription bottle with 29 tablets of Viagra in it, but without the conservative talk show host’s name on it.

People reports that Roy Black, Rush Limbaugh’s attorney, released a statement, claiming “A physician had prescribed the drug, which treats erectile dysfunction, but the bottle was ‘labeled as being issued to the physician rather than Mr. Limbaugh for privacy purposes.’ … Kendall Coffey, a former U.S. Attorney in Florida as saying “It’s perhaps a little embarrassing but not highly incriminating,” adding that Viagra is in a “completely different universe than a matter that would involve Schedule Two (controlled) substances such as OxyContin.” – deadbolt

“Indeed, the Dominican Republic is one of the biggest sex tourism destinations in the world, thanks in part to Internet sites that extol the country as a “single man’s paradise.” – wired

“Journalists reported that the majority of prostitutes in brothels visited around the National District appeared to be between 16 and 18 years of age. … Prostitution is the principal area of exploitation of underage girls in the informal economy.” – USstatedept.gov
