Michael Jackson is not being investigated because he is Michael Jackson.
O.J. was not prosecuted because he was O.J.
Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker were not prosecuted because of who they are (although it probably would not have bothered me in this case).
Mike Tyson was not prosecuted because he is Mike Tyson (although there probably should be a law on the books about that one).
And so forth:
Earlier Friday, Limbaugh’s attorney, Roy Black, accused the Palm Beach state attorney of investigating Limbaugh only for political reasons. Black said Limbaugh was not a target of State Attorney Barry Krischer’s investigation until October when the National Enquirer quoted Limbaugh’s maid as saying she had unlawfully sold Limbaugh such medications.
“Suddenly an elected public official could not ignore the name Rush Limbaugh,” Black said on NBC’s “Today” show. Black is also a paid NBC commentator. “They are looking to publicly embarrass him and affect his radio program….Why is Rush Limbaugh the only person treated like this in America?”
If they prosecute you, I am rather confident it is not because you are Rush Limbaugh.
