A Palm Beach County judge who was in the same jurisdiction as the Rush Limbaugh drug addiction case, was removed from the bench after he checked
himself into a treatment facility for dependency on OxyContin. OxyContin is the same prescription drug that Limbaugh is being tried for possessing. It
was never fully investigated if the judge obtained his pills legally even though he was hooked on them for 8 years.
Within the last 18 months, Palm Beach County Judge Robert Schwartz was "involuntarily retired" and removed after he checked himself into a
treatment center for dependency of the painkiller OxyContin -- the same drug at the center of the Limbaugh probe.
"He was severely addicted to prescription pain killers," an insider tells the DRUDGE REPORT. "He probably got them from a variety of sources. But
unlike Rush Limbaugh, he was never prosecuted! His records do not appear to have been seized nor were his doctorsí offices raided. Talk about friend
of the court!"
How ironic that a judge in the same county is having the same problem, and as of now, he is not being prosecuted for it. Limbaugh is essentially being
prosecuted for doctor shopping. Is this a double standard?
