In a closed-door ceremony at the MISSOURI State Capitol in JEFFERSON CITY, Republican legislators inducted PREMIERE NETWORKS' RUSH LIMBAUGH into the Hall of Famous Missourians MONDAY (5/15).
House Speaker STEVE TILLEY (R-PERRYVILLE) and Lt. Gov. PETER KINDER were on hand for the event, which was made invitation-only after the controversy over LIMBAUGH's comments about student/activist SANDRA FLUKE drew fire for the nomination. Remaining unclear is whether the bust of LIMBAUGH commissioned for the occasion will be displayed in the Capitol rotunda alongside other honorees.
Former CUMULUS Talk WBAP-A-F/DALLAS host MARK DAVIS filled in for LIMBAUGH on MONDAY while RUSH visited his native state.
