Despite a fierce petition drive by the femi-Nazie, American hero Rush Limbaugh was inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians today in Jefferson City, Missouri.
Controversial radio host Rush Limbaugh will be inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians at the State Capitol in Jefferson City Monday afternoon.
Missouri House Speaker Steven Tilley (R-Perryville) alerted media statewide less than half an hour before the ceremony’s scheduled start time at 1 p.m.
Rush Limbaugh, a Cape Girardeau native, achieved national prominence over the last three decades as a syndicated conservative talk radio host.
Women’s rights groups have gotten more than 35,000 signatures on petitions opposing the plan to induct Rush Limbaugh. Those groups said Limbaugh disrespected women when he described a Georgetown law student in February as a “slut” and “prostitute.” Limbaugh later apologized for his language.
The Hall of Famous Missourians is a series of bronze busts located on the third floor of the Missouri Capitol between the House and Senate chambers. Missouri House Speakers have the discretion each session to decide who is inducted into the Hall. Each bust costs around $10,000 to make and is paid for by the Speaker’s Annual Gold Classic.
