Bomb Squad Called To Rush Limbaugh's Home, But It's A False Alarm
March 1, 2012 at 5:22 PM (PT)
The PALM BEACH COUNTY Sheriff's Office was called to the home of PREMIERE NETWORKS host RUSH LIMBAUGH TODAY after the host's staff received what they thought was a suspicious package in the mail.
The package was x-rayed in accordance with the staff's procedure for all mail sent to the home, and wires were seen in the x-ray, prompting the call to the police. PALM BEACH Police said that the package was not a danger and instead turned out to be an electronic plaque about the assassination of ABRAHAM LINCOLN, sent by a man in PENNSYLVANIA.
LIMBAUGH has been engaging in a controversy over his comments about a GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY law student's testimony about government-paid contraception, calling her a "slut" and prostitute for demanding to have the governent pay for her contraception and, earlier TODAY, saying that "if we are going to pay for your contraceptives, and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it. We want you post the videos online so we can all watch."
