Rush Limbaugh's Dominican Stag Party
The Smoking Gun ^ | July 6, 2006 | Smoking Gun

Posted on 07/07/2006 7:39:13 AM PDT by RDTF

JULY 6--Rush Limbaugh was traveling with four other men--including the producers of the hit show "24"--when he was detained over a mislabeled bottle of Viagra found in his luggage during a Customs search. A Department of Homeland security passenger manifest shows that Limbaugh and his four buddies flew from the Dominican Republic on a Gulfstream IV jet owned by Premiere Radio Networks, which syndicates his radio program. Limbaugh returned to Palm Beach, Florida on June 26 with Joel Surnow, "24"'s co-creator and executive producer and Howard Gordon, another of the Fox hit's executive producers (Hollywood agent Jeffrey Benson was also part of the Limbaugh quintet). With all those guys in tow, it is unclear what Limbaugh needed with those 29 100mg Viagra pills. The passenger manifest was among several documents released today by the Palm Beach County State's Attorney in response to a TSG open records request. Included in the material released were a copy of the handwritten statement Limbaugh provided investigators after he was detained upon the discovery of the impotency drug. An affidavit sworn three days later by Limbaugh was also released. In that document, Limbaugh explains that the Viagra "was intended for my exclusive use" and that the drug had been prescribed in the name of his drug treatment doctor, Steven Strumwasser, "to further maintain and protect my privacy."

I don't understand the point of this article. That Rush took a trip with some friends? Big deal. BTW, I bet sales of Viagra have skyrocketed since this incident - Rush should get a comission for his inadvertent advertising.

Who cares about Rush's sex life? Should it be my business to ask you who you sleep with? You'd rightly say, bug off! Point made.

Rush has already mentioned the other ailment he was using the pills for (something intestinal or something).

L-Dopa will give you a raging hard on too (Jim Bakus wrote of this) but it is used to treat Parkinson's Disease.

Wasn't there some heart medication that was remarketed for erectile disfunction?

Sue them for libel. That'll teach them.

Enron got so much press for bad deeds that they changed their name.

It is bullZogby. The press makes things up (just as Zogby biased his "Kerry wins" polling figures).

Viagra should hire Rush to do ads for them. Vile lefties, they will stoop so low to bring someone down.

Rush,

I gotta side with Trump on this issue. If you need Viagra ... you're with the wrong woman(s).

Dittos though!

Viagra was originally created as heart medication.

The "point" of the article is simply the Smoking Gun folks doing what they always do -- publish the legal documents of celebrities who get into scrapes with the law. In that regard Rush Limbaugh is no different from, say, Carmen Electra or Nick Nolte.

It's an embarrassment for Mr. Limbaugh -- I think most folks know exactly what activities he had in mind when he packed his bottle of Viagra.

I read there were thirty originally in the prescription. He had used one between the time of the original prescription (last winter maybe?) and the Custom's search. When and where is unknown, but probably was not on the Dominican Republic trip. Remember he was surrounded by all those good looking ladies on one of his golf outings earlier this year.

Talk about media complicity...I remember nothing about who (read: how many wimmins) else was there; but I do recall thinking that his knee injury was consistent with falling because your pants are down around your ankles.

He went on at length about it in one of his books.

He also mentioned muttering some obscene things in the Mr. Magoo shorts (generally edited out) and his idea of an X-rated Mr. Magoo feature around the time of Fritz the Cat where Magoo wanders into a red light district and reinterprets his surroundings.

30 pills perscribe years ago. ONE pill used.

Seems the smoking gun needs a viagra pill for their lead.

Seriously, this incident shows customs is compromised in Palm Beach because it can be USED for political reasons rather than real security.

HELLO?!!! homeland security! security breach WPB!!!! hello!!!!!!!!!!

The left immediately tried to play this as sex tourism.

(B) attack his manhood
(C) implicate him in "crimes"

But they don't engage in the politics of personal destruction < /BARF /GAG /PUKE >

Nice of them to slip that in there. And if these reporting investigators would only listen to the show they'd know Rush has had the bottle since Dec and kept it in his brief case. I do believe he mentioned it was prescribed after he suffered from some medical condition.

They'd rather trash their own reputation (as Snopes and Google do often) to engage in political smears (and snears).

Another unreliable "reference" site.
