Rush Limbaugh has rights too?

Shocking, I know, but that's what his lawyer, Roy Black, says in this piece in today's Wall Street Journal.

This part is particularly revealing:

Normally, people with drug dependencies who acknowledge their problems and seek treatment are lauded for their courage, not prosecuted. So am I wrong to wonder if something is out of whack when the Palm Beach County State Attorney pulls out all the stops in an effort to nail Rush, while giving immunity to the traffickers who supposedly kept him supplied with painkillers, and who, as a result of a deal with the prosecutor, were able to make a six-figure killing selling their "story" to a tabloid?

Even if you think Rush is an enormous hypocrite and that there would be some kind of cosmic justice from a drug conviction for him, this abuse of prosecutorial discretion by a prosecutor with a political ax to grind (the prosecutor is an elected Democrat) should give you pause.
