Limbaugh Says His Doctors' Records Have Been Seized

Rush Limbaugh and his lawyer are accusing prosecutors of going on a "fishing expedition."

In a statement from his lawyer, which he read on his talk show today, Limbaugh said prosecutors in Florida have seized medical records from four of his doctors.

He says those medical records will clear him -- and he denies any wrongdoing.

Limbaugh recently missed five weeks of work, as he spent time at a drug rehab program. He had announced that he was addicted to prescription painkillers.

Authorities in Palm Beach County had earlier confirmed that there was a criminal investigation into a presciption drug ring, and that the investigation involved Limbaugh.

His former maid said she had supplied him with OxyContin and other painkillers.
