Mar 20, 2012

Another group has organized a protest against the Missouri House Speaker's plan to put controversial conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh in the Hall of Famous Missourians

A women's rights group wants House Speaker Republican Steve Tilley to "Flush Rush."

So, Claire Major and other members of the Missouri chapter of the National Organization for Women delivered more than 500 rolls of toilet paper to his office.

"Rush Limbaugh is a misogynist, and a bigot, and a bully and we don't need a role model like that in Missouri," Major said.

After a short protest and some stories - The group had the Speaker's office stocked full of toilet paper.

Some protesters like Anita Cleaver came all the way from St. Louis.

"It's absolutely ridiculous to put a bust of Rush Limbaugh in the same company as a bust of Mark Twain and a bust of Dred Scott," Cleaver said.

Speaker Tilley says he welcomes the toilet paper and plans on donating it to charity.

But he has no plans on changing his mind to honor Rush Limbaugh in the Hall of Famous Missourians.
