The Boonville R-1 School District Board of Education held a special session Tuesday night to discuss investigating the superintendent’s possible involvement in a controversial stunt at the Missouri State Fair.
Superintendent Mark Ficken was the announcer at the Missouri State Fair’s bull-riding event Saturday when a clown appeared in a mask resembling President Barack Obama and asked the crowd if it wanted to see Obama stomped by a bull. Now, Boonville’s school board says it has hired a consultant to investigate Ficken’s involvement.
Missouri State Fair director Mark Wolfe says the rodeo clown responsible for the controversial act over the weekend has been banned from the fair. The clown had donned a mask of President Obama and asked spectators if they wanted to see "Obama run down by a bull."
