Rush Limbaugh, on drugs, 1995:
"What this says to me is that too many whites are getting away with drug use. Too many whites are getting away with drug sales. Too many whites are getting away with trafficking in this stuff. The answer to this disparity is not to start letting people out of jail because we're not putting others in jail who are breaking the law. The answer is to go out and find the ones who are getting away with it, convict them and send them up the river, too."
Rush Limbaugh's attorney, speaking about the plea deal Limbaugh reached with prosecutors to avoid jail time on charges of prescription fraud and addiction to prescription drugs, 2006:
“The agreement that we entered into makes good common sense, the idea is to help the person overcome the addiction ... There should be a recognition that people like Rush really should not be prosecuted.”
Ah, how circumstances change.
