RE: El Rushbo going to El Slammer ?
The legal issue at hand was not the statute, heck, he hasn't even been charged yet. The issue he litigated was whether a person can claim a right of privacy to shield one's medical records from a lawful subpeona and whether prior consent had to be obtained before a search warrant could be executed to search a doctor's office for medical records. These were ludicrous assertions.
Mr. Limbaugh put himself in this position - he broke the law, and now the law has a right to not only prosecute whatever violation it wishes, it has the right to investigate other possible violations as well. As far as your points on that particular law, we don't get to choose what law-breaking we are prosecuted for. Prosecutors do. Judges and juries get to decide those issues, not talk show audiences. If the prosecution is bogus as you claim, his multi-million dollar fee lawyers will have every opportunity to litigate it. Unfortunately, they won't get very far with that either - the law is the law and no matter how arcane it is, if it is valid and a prosecutor wants to prosecute, he has every right, especially if the person under suspicion has been uncooperative.
